Abstract

This paper is an update to the author’s 2015 thesis, which presented a corpus study on the acquisition of case and gender by L1 English learners of Russian, including both heritage and second language learners. To ensure replicability of this study and increase the potential usefulness of the corpus data to other researchers, the author of the paper has annotated all T-units in each of the sample learner texts with XML tags. In this updated paper, the author has recalculated the rates of learners' nominal morphology errors per T-unit and words per T-unit reported in the 2015 paper and repeated the statistical tests that were based on those rates. While the key findings of the 2015 paper remain unchanged, the precise statistical results and the level of significance of some previous results have been updated.
