Abstract [en]

This paper reports results from a larger study where the grammatical development of L2-learners is related to their results of the oral test in the so-called Tisus (test in Swedish for University and College Studies).

The present study aims to investigate if the syntactic levels of the test takers who passed differ from the ones who failed. For this purpose Processability Theory (Pienemann 1998) is applied. This theory claims that the grammar of the learner language is acquired in a fixed sequence of five levels. The study is based on recordings of 66 test takers of which 33 passed the test and 33 failed.

The results show a clear difference between the two groups. The test takers who passed have usually reached level 4 or higher whereas the ones who failed have not. This may indicate a connection between the test takers’ syntactic development and their general communicative language ability.
