How Does Anxiety Affect Second Language Learning? A Reply to Sparks and Ganschow.
MacIntyre, Peter D.
Modern Language Journal, v79 n1 p90-99 Spr 1995

This paper studies the role of anxiety in the language learning process and concludes that the linguistic coding deficit hypothesis errs in assigning epiphenomenal status to language anxiety.
