The study of linguistic acquisition implies the study of the contexts where this process evolves. In order to analyze the role of the residence in the country of the target language, we formed two groups of informants (one in Greece, one in France). In order to make this comparison, we chose to analyze the reference to the entities and the temporal reference in the texts collected, and we hoped to show the influence of a residence in France.
