Abstract

This volume presents comprehensive research on English refusals, focusing primarily on L2 use and secondarily on second language acquisition. Twenty-four dyads were video-taped performing open role plays in response to eight situations (two suggestions, two offers, two invitations, and two requests) designed to elicit a refusal. Each dyad consisted of an English NS and NNS, the latter being native speakers of Japanese with low to intermediate English proficiency.
