Skilled Performance, Practice, and the Differentiation of Speed-Up from Automatization Effects: Evidence from Second Language Word Recognition.
Segalowitz, Norman S.; Segalowitz, Sidney J.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v14 n3 p369-85 Sep 1993
Practice on cognitive tasks, such as word recognition tasks, will usually lead to faster and more stable responding in a second language. An analysis is presented of the relationship between observed reductions in performance latency and latency variability with respect to whether processing has become faster or whether a qualitative change, such as automatization, has taken place.
