Linguistic and Cognitive Determinants of Lexical Acquisition in a Second Language.
Ijaz, I. Helene
Language Learning, v36 n4 p401-51 Dec 1986
A semantic-relatedness test and a cloze-type/sentence-completion test compared meanings ascribed to spatial prepositions by adult native English and advanced English-as-a-second-language speakers. Non-native speakers differed from native speakers in the semantic boundaries ascribed to the words, with the differences deriving from weighting (influenced by native-language transfer) of semantic dimensions.
