Exploration of Mnemonics for ESL/EFL Vocabulary: Employing the Depth and Elaboration of Processing Theory
Lv, Wenpeng; Young, Barbara Newman
Online Submission, Tennessee Educational Leadership v42 n1 p30-33 Spr 2015
Sound, form, meaning, and usage are four essentials of a word. English is alphabetic in its writing system. A word's pronunciation is usually connected with its form; however, the relationship between sound and meaning has been controversial throughout the ages. Vocabulary mnemonics differ from each other in their primary focus of attention. Utilizing the Depth and Elaboration of Processing Theory (hereafter, "DEPT"), (Craik & Lockhart, 1972; Craik & Tulving, 1975), we conducted research regarding major ESL/EFL vocabulary mnemonics. We classified vocabulary mnemonics into shallow- and deep-encoding types, analyzed the advantage and disadvantage of each mnemonic, and concluded that combined mnemonic is more effective.
