The Effect of Semantic Clustering on the Learning of Second Language Vocabulary.
Tinkham, Thomas
System, v21 n3 p371-80 Aug 1993
Reports on a study that compared, in two experiments, the learning rates of subjects learning semantically related and semantically unrelated new second-language words. The findings strongly suggest that students have more difficulty learning new words presented to them in semantic clusters than they do learning semantically unrelated words. (18 references) (JL)
