The Differential Role of Comprehension and Production Practice.
DeKeyser, Robert M.; Sokalski, Karl J.
Language Learning, v46 n4 p613-42 Dec 1996
Presents a replication of experiments which found that input practice is better than output practice for comprehension skills, and no worse than output practice for production skills in a second language (Spanish). Findings reveal that these patterns are obscured when the testing time and the morphosyntactic nature of the structure in question favor one skill or the other. (40 references) (Author/CK)
