At a Loss for Words: The Use of Communication Strategies to Convey Lexical Meaning.
Corrales, Olga; Call, Mary Emily
Foreign Language Annals, v22 n3 p227-40 May 1989
A study investigated communication strategies used to express lexical meaning in English by two groups (intermediate and advanced) of Spanish-speaking adult learners of English-as-a-Second-Language. Both structured and unstructured tasks were used to assess interlanguage development vis-a-vis proficiency, and results indicated that the unstructured task elicited more transfer strategies from both groups of students.
