Contatto linguistico e influenza translinguistica

Un’indagine in una scuola internazionale a Napoli


The paper investigates the oral linguistic productions of children of different ages in an international school based in Naples, in which English is used as the main language of communication for all the subjects taught. Spanish is also used but for a lesser number of hours. The purpose of this paper is to identify the possible crosslinguistic influence across languages that students master with reference to some syntactic and morphological phenomena.
