Hi. Would anyone let me know possible tests to distinguish arguments
and adjuncts? (other than extraction across islands, and Lebeaux's
reconstruction in 'which claim that Bill is a dancer/Bill made ...'
contrast.)

Tests on Japanese would be great, and those on other languages would
be also equally great. Gladly post a summary.

Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely,

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am working on the acquisition of Cantonese as a second language for
my PhD study and looking for the information of the following :

1. Cantonese placement test ( preferably in the form of a cloze passage)
2. Previous studies on the acquisition of Cantonese as a second language

I would be most grateful if I could have any news about the above two
items. Thank you for your kind attention.

Best wishes,
Wai Lan Tsang
