Title of Dissertation:
The Effects of Cognitive Linguistics-based Instruction on the Acquisition of English Phrasal Verbs
Professor Ron DARVIN
This study aims to compare the relative effects of CL-based instruction and translation-based instruction on the comprehension and production of English PVs by Chinese EFL learners. It also examines whether the CL account of PVs could benefit meaning predictions of the PVs unexposed to students during the treatment.
