The Mental Lexicon: Vocabulary Acquisition as a Problem of Linguistics and of Human Memory.
Holley, Freda M.
This paper discusses various theories of the role of memory in vocabulary acquisition and storage. Several research models are described, and theoretical considerations and questions are presented. The lexicon is seen as an element of grammar; an understanding of lexicon organization is important in the understanding of vocabulary acquisition. Research into memory and vocabulary development has implications for the foreign language teacher. (VM)
