"Conscious" versus "Unconscious" Learning.
McLaughlin, Barry
TESOL Quarterly, v24 n4 p617-34 1990
Examines the concept of consciousness in second-language research. After defining theoretical assumptions and reviewing a number of controversies in the psycholinguistic and second-language literature, it is argued that the terms conscious and unconscious have acquired too much surplus meaning and should be abandoned in favor of clearly defined empirical concepts.
