Subject Language(s):  English

Query:   I am researching the acquisition of pronominal objects of prepositions in L2 English of native Spanish speakers for my master's thesis in linguistics. For example, Spanish speakers have the tendency to say; ''I want to go with she.'' Instead of, ''I want to go with her.'' substituting the subject form for the object form. Does anyone know of some studies that have been done in this area? They don't have to be regarding Spanish speakers' acquisition of English, but that would be helpful.
