Abstract or Summary

Many second language learners are over-explicit in the language they use when they first learn English. These trends are apparent in second language learners across a whole range of languages. Intermediate to advanced language learners tend to be over‐explicit, apparently irrespective of their L1 and L2. Yet all languages push speakers to be economical: it seems to be a pragma‐linguistic universal.
