Title: NS-NNS negotiation and communication strategy use in the host family versus the study abroad classroom;
Native speaker-Non-native speaker negotiation and communication strategy use in the host family versus the study abroad classroom 
Author: McMeekin, Abigail L.
Date: 2003
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: While there are many studies of NS-NNS negotiation, there are few studies that have examined and compared negotiation and communication strategy use that occurs in unelicited interactions in the study abroad classroom and host family environment Through analysis of NS-NNS negotiations from video and audio-taped interactions, this study of five learners of Japanese studying abroad answers the following research questions: 1) How does negotiation and communication strategy use differ in the study abroad classroom and host family setting? 2) What are the implications of these differences for second language acquisition in terms of comprehensible input, modified output, and focus on form? Thus, the present study contributes to the already existing literature on study abroad, negotiation, and communication strategies. Moreover, it shows how NNS participation in the process of negotiation including exposure to and possible uptake of information about the target language is conveyed through negotiation and how this process differs between the classroom and host family setting. *N5-NNS (native speaker- non-native speaker)
