Space description in the speech of non-standard speakers of Russian
2018
This study investigates the language of children (aged 5-7 years old) speaking Russian as their L1 and L2 speakers of Russian dominant in English. The language of interest in this study is Russian. We had three groups of respondents: adult monolingual speakers of Russian, children with the only one native language – Russian, learners of Russian as a foreign language with English as a dominant language. We ran an experiment where cartoon fragments and pictures from these fragments were shown to the respondents. The respondents were asked to retell the stories from the cartoon fragments and to answer the questions asked by the researcher. We created the database with the narrations and answers. The narrations were separated into elementary discourse units (EDU) in which other linguistics characteristics were annotated. We analyzed the coherence of the narratives produced by the respondents. We also looked at the sizes of narrations, tenses used in the narrations, mistakes in reference, description of objects with difficult shape.
