A Classroom Perspective on the Negotiation of Meaning.
Foster, Pauline
Applied Linguistics, v19 n1 p1-23 Mar 1998
Examines how college-level intermediate English-as-a-Second-Language students modify interaction when engaged in small-group versus pair work, and whether task type (optional versus required information exchange) affects amount of language and interaction individual students produce. Results suggest "negotiation of meaning" is not a strategy learners are predisposed to using when encountering a gap in understanding. (Author/MSE)
