Second Language Acquisition and Sociolinguistic Variation: A Study Abroad Perspective on the Use of Discourse Markers in the L2

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Study abroad has become a prolific area of second language acquisition (SLA)
research and, in particular, a new stream in SLA research, specifically from within a
variationist perspective, has started investigating sociolinguistic and sociopragmatic
variation in the second language (L2). Combining insights from sociolinguistic
variation and SLA, this contribution, which is part of an ongoing PhD research
project, is based on a longitudinal analysis conducted over a time span of a
semester (January-June 2015) at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland. In
particular, the aim of this study is to examine participants’ use of the discourse
marker ‘well’ in their oral production over time.
