Presentation title
Lexical and syntactic complexity in L2 writing: Within-genre topic effect and L1 backgrounds
Presentation abstract
This study explores cross-linguistic influence (CLI) and topic effects on the lexical and syntactic complexity in second language (L2) learners’ writing. The present study analyzes a corpus of argumentative essays written by EFL learners of English with the aim to examine changes in syntactic and lexical dimensions of complexity across different topics and L1 backgrounds. The written module of the International Corpus Network of Asian Learners of English (ICNALE) is adopted in this study (Ishikawa, 2013). The ICNALE is the corpus of argumentative essays written by college-level Asian learners of English from 10 countries. These essays are analyzed using 10 syntactic complexity measures with the L2 Syntactic Complexity Analyzer (Lu, 2010). After the lexical and syntactic complexity indices are obtained, a two-way repeated-measures MANOVA with topic as a within- subjects variable and L1 as a between-subjects variable are conducted. For main and interaction effects with statistical significance, univariate analyses are performed to identify each of the dependent variables (complexity measures) significantly influenced by the predictors. The results of these analyses will be discussed in depth in terms of previous arguments about the relationship of lexical and syntactic complexity in L2 writing to topic effect and L1 backgrounds.
