1. McAlister, James Thomas. A quantitative study of influencing factors in heritage language maintenance: Title on signature form: A quantitative study of influencing factors in heritage language maintenance.

Degree: PhD, 2018, Ball State University

Heritage language families are families in which one or both parents are a native speaker of a language other than the dominant language of the national culture. When attempting to pass on the heritage language, parents have varying levels of success. Some children in heritage language families become native-like in their heritage language abilities while other children disregard the language and do not develop the skills to communicate in the heritage language. A great deal of qualitative work has been conducted on heritage language families, and some quantitative and mixed methods studies have been conducted in educational environments. These studies have revealed five common factors that may play a role in the child’s heritage language development: attitude, identity, access to resources, community interaction, and parental modeling. These factors have been discussed in numerous studies, but never have they been compared to their fullest extent. The purpose of this study has been to provide an example of how to use statistical analysis to uncover the extent of influence these factors have. This study may allow researchers to better understand what factors are most influential in motivating heritage language maintenance. The results of a survey were analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis nonparametric testing with Mann-Whitney U post-hoc analysis to test for significance alongside multiple regression analysis to examine the strength of the correlations. The results reveal a number of significance findings, particularly in relation to access to resources. The regression analysis also reveals strong correlations involving identity as a factor. These statistics could be used as an initial benchmark to examine larger sample sizes as well as more condensely designed studies. Nonetheless, improving the child’s connection to a balanced heritage-national identity seems to be a direction for developing balanced skills in both the heritage and national languages. With the proper use and access to resources, children will also have more opportunities to study the heritage language. Advisors/Committee Members: Hamada, Megumi (advisor).

2. Park, Chaehee. The influence of L1 phonological and orthographic system in L2 spelling : a comparison of Korean learners of English and native speaking children.

Degree: PhD, 2011, Ball State University

Literacy development, particularly spelling development is an important topic in SLA because spelling ability is the foundation of literacy skills (Venezky, 1989). However, little is known about the development of spelling in ESL. Research on the development of spelling skills has focused on native English language. This study investigated English L2 spellings among Korean L1 learners of English on the basis of linguistic differences in their L1 and L2 phonology and orthography. Two groups of 3rd graders, Korean L1 English learners (N=36) and native English speakers (N=30), performed a pseudoword spelling task, in which they listened to an audio recording of a total of 34 pseudowords and dictated what they heard. The task material targeting phonological difference consists of two types of pseudowords: the consonants that exist in both English and in Korean (congruent type) and the consonants that do not exist in Korean but exist English (incongruent type). The task material targeting orthographic difference consists of two types of pseudowords: more consistent vowels and less consistent vowels. Data were tested with an experiment with a 2 x 2 factorial design with “group” and “word type” as independent variables. The groups included two groups who are from contrasting L1 backgrounds: English and Korean. For phonological difference, word type included two contrasting types: congruent and incongruent. For orthographic difference, word type included two contrasting types: more consistent and less consistent. The results support the prediction that Korean L1 learners of English would have difficulty in spelling pseudowords containing phonemes which do not exist in Korean but are present in English phonology and that learners whose L1 is relatively transparent had difficulty in spelling L2 words whose grapheme phoneme correspondence is less transparent. Further analysis on error types and pedagogical implications regarding English L2 spellings are addressed. Advisors/Committee Members: Hamada, Megumi (advisor).
