Error Gravity: A Critical Review of Research Design.
Rifkin, Benjamin; Roberts, Felicia D.
Language Learning, v45 n3 p511-37 Sep 1995
Examines error gravity research design and its theoretical assumptions. Results indicate that investigators have only skimmed the surface of the process of error evaluation, which is shaped by extralinguistic factors. The article concludes that researchers should reconceptualize error gravity research and reassess earlier studies to confirm or disaffirm their stated outcomes. (48 references) (Author/CK)
