Abstract:

Research in the field of Chinese as a second/foreign language (L2)
acquisition, at present, does not match the increasing demand to learn
Chinese as an L2, given that Chinese is the fastest growing foreign
language in countries such as Japan, South Korea, the United States,
Canada, UK and Australia.

Particularly, research in Chinese L2 word order acquisition requires more
attention because word order plays a more complex role in Chinese than in
English due to the fact that Chinese relies heavily on word order for
information structuring. Experience with Chinese L2 learning and teaching
shows that Chinese word order errors are a significant problem with adult
English-speaking learners. However, Chinese L2 researchers and teachers are
left with no means to adequately describe and explain these errors for
instruction purposes.

This book is specifically written to provide such a means for them to
understand Chinese word order, to describe and explain Chinese word order
errors and also to help treat such errors in L2 classrooms. The centrality
of word order in Chinese grammar and the emerging popularity of learning
Chinese L2 make this book an important resource for both the learner and
the teacher.
