Applying Priming Methods to L2 Learning, Teaching and Research: Insights from Psycholinguistics
Pavel Trofimovich, Kim McDonough
John Benjamins Publishing, 2011 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 254 pages
This volume features a collection of empirical studies which use priming methods to explore the comprehension, production, and acquisition of second language (L2) phonology, syntax, and lexicon. The term "priming" refers to the phenomenon in which prior exposure to specific language forms or meanings influences a speaker s subsequent language comprehension or production. This book brings together the various strands of priming research into a single volume that specifically addresses the interests of researchers, teachers, and students interested in L2 teaching and learning. Chapters by internationally known scholars feature a variety of priming techniques, describe various psycholinguistic tasks, and focus on different domains of language knowledge and skills. The book is conceptualized with a wide audience in mind, including researchers not familiar with priming methods and their application to L2 research, graduate students in second language acquisition and related disciplines, and instructors who require readings for use in their courses."
