By Pavel Trofimovich, Kim McDonough

This quantity encompasses a choice of empirical reports which use priming tips on how to discover the comprehension, creation, and acquisition of moment language (L2) phonology, syntax, and lexicon. The time period priming refers back to the phenomenon within which previous publicity to precise language varieties or meanings impacts a speaker’s next language comprehension or creation. This publication brings jointly a number of the strands of priming study right into a unmarried quantity that in particular addresses the pursuits of researchers, lecturers, and scholars attracted to L2 instructing and studying. Chapters through across the world recognized students characteristic numerous priming ideas, describe a number of psycholinguistic initiatives, and concentrate on various domain names of language wisdom and talents. The booklet is conceptualized with a large viewers in brain, together with researchers now not conversant in priming tools and their program to L2 learn, graduate scholars in moment language acquisition and similar disciplines, and teachers who require readings to be used of their classes.

Example text

That is, suppose that responding was constrained in such a way as to examine more implicit, automatic learning of those words as captured via 25 26 Jeanette Altarriba and Hugh Knickerbocker reaction time tasks. Would these tasks uncover differences in learning in much the same way as free recall tasks have been reported to, in the past? , free recall tasks). A commonly used paradigm in word recognition studies believed to capture cognitive processing that is fast, automatic, and that occurs without intention is the word priming paradigm (Neely 1977; Neely, Keefe & Ross 1989; see Segalowitz, Lacroix & Job, this volume, for a discussion of automaticity in L2 processing and examples of tasks tapping into automatic processing).

A new L2 word) increases, eventually leading to fluent like abilities to access semantic information through L2 vocabulary. While Williams and Cheung warn against simple translation learning, initial acquisition through paired translations may be a good way to create stores of orthographic and phonological information for novel L2 vocabulary (in addition to episodic associations with known L1 vocabulary). , pictorial depictions) should effectively maximize the number of different memory traces associated with newly mastered L2 vocabulary.

Once the new Spanish word set had been fully acquired by the participant, they were then given a LDT to test for their automatic activation of the newly learned word, under constrained presentation conditions. The word priming task that they were administered contained pairings of the correct translations intermixed with unrelated word pairs, in an attempt to uncover whether or not semantic priming effects were moderated by the mode of learning. It was expected, based on the above data on the perception of colored objects, that color pictures might ultimately facilitate lexical decision responses more so than the other two learning formats, as the objects that were learned were basic, common objects that appeared in their expected colors.
