Research Transference markers
Verbal Devices for Marking Transference in the Speech of First Generation
Italian-English Bilinguals in and Around Turangi
This thesis is a study of aspects of the dynamics of conversation between bilinguals. It focuses on “transference markers”, described here as verbal devices used by speakers to mark off transfers in their speech. [...] Transference markers are shown to be interactive strategies which allow bilingual speakers and hearers to overcome these problems and construct a workable ad hoc communicative norm.
