Query:   I am an M.A. student in Applied Linguistics and have chosen as a topic for my thesis the acquisition of Japanese locative particles by adult English and/or French speakers. I am interested in studying the sequence of acquisition of these features, as well as the possible influence of transfer. Most of the articles I have found, however, report studies conducted with children who are studying Japanese with the FLES Programme in the United States, and very few of them mention the acquistion of particles at all. These articles include the ones published by Igarashi, K., Wudthayagorn, J., Donato, R. & Tucker, G.R. (2002); Antonek, J., Donato, R. & Tucker, G.R. (2000); Carpenter, K., Fujii, N. & Kataoka, H. (1995); and Hakuta, K. (1982). I was wondering if anyone is aware of research on the acquisition of locative particles by Japanese L2 learners that I may have missed. I would greatly appreciate your help with this and promise in return to post all relevant article references on the Linguist List for future reference.
