The Din in the Head, Input, and the Language Acquisition Device.
Krashen, Stephen D.
Foreign Language Annals, v16 n1 p41-44 Feb 1983
Involuntary mental rehearsal of foreign language words, sounds, and phrases is found consistent with current second language acquisition theory and case history reports. It is suggested the "din in the head" results from stimulation of the language acquisition device set off when the acquirer receives enough comprehensible input. (Author/MSE)
