This article uses a conversation analytic framework to describe Korean speakers’ practices of co-present person reference by means of quasi-pronouns. In referring to a co-present party in a conversation, Korean speakers make use of demonstrative-based quasi-pronouns. While the proximal demonstrative is the default form to be used for this purpose,...

In Korean, reference forms can be omitted so long as the referent can be understood by the interlocutor(s); speaker/recipient reference terms are most readily omitted because they are easily retrievable from the physical interactional context. The current study represents the first attempt to examine specifically when and why Korean speakers do use...

As evidenced by the chapters in this volume, speakers of any language have at their disposal an array of alternative forms that can be used for referring to people. What factors influence a speaker's c...

This article follows up a previous study (Oh, 2005), which has investigated English speakers’ practices of employing zero anaphora (or omission of an overt reference term) in ordinary conversations, with special reference to the kind of interactional work that they accomplish by the practice. The findings of Oh (2005) have demonstrated that unlike...

Based upon the results of analyzing sp...

L'A. postule que le focus constitue le facteur le plus pertinent a partir duquel le locuteur effectue le choix d'une expression par rapport a une autre dans la reference demonstrative. Cette etude vise deux objectifs. Le premier est de montrer qu'une approche basee sur le focus est superieure a toute autre approche pour expliquer les raisons pour l...

This study investigates the relative effects of two types of input modification—simplification and elaboration—on Korean high school students' EFL reading comprehension. Six English reading passages in one of three forms—(a) baseline, (b) simplified, or (c) elaborated—were presented to 180 students, who were divided into two proficiency levels (i.e...
