    L3 Acquisition of Mandarin Sentence-Final Particles by English-Cantonese Bilinguals
    Yanyu Guo

    This study of multilingualism investigates how English-Cantonese bilinguals acquire Sentence-Final Particles (SFPs) in their third language Mandarin, focusing on the roles of age, typological differences and learning experience in the course of language acquisition. In this seminar, I will briefly introduce the theoretical background of this study and present five different instruments (i.e. a cross-modal priming task, a sentence-picture matching task, a performance imitation task, a multiple-choice task and an acceptability judgement task) with related stimuli, which will be employed in the main experiment.
