Counterpoint Piece: The Case for Variety in Corrective Feedback Research
Lyster, Roy; Ranta, Leila
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v35 n1 p167-184 Mar 2013
Goo and Mackey (this issue) outline several apparent design flaws in studies that have compared the impact of different types of corrective feedback (CF). Furthermore, they argue that SLA researchers should stop comparing recasts to other types of CF because they are inherently different kinds of phenomena. Our response to their article addresses (a) the claim that the recast-learning relationship has been "settled," (b) the misleading representation of our views on uptake, (c) the characterization of the CF comparison studies as being weak and invalid, and (d) Goo and Mackey's recommendations concerning the most appropriate approach to investigating the effect of feedback on second language learning.
