    Abstract

    The present study will go into developmental aspects of repetitions in the second
    language acquisition process of adult immigrants: learners of Dutch. Given their experience with another language, these learners are certainly acquainted with the
    basic features of communication. The central aim of the present study is to explore
    the interactional characteristics of repetitions. The question is how adult second
    language-learners use part of what their NS-interlocutor has said as efficient means to interact. It will concentrate upon how the repetitive procedures are related to the process of learning a new language.
