Assessing the Development of Automaticity in Second Language Word Recognition.
Segalowitz, Sidney J.; Segalowitz, Norman S.; Wood, Anthony G.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v19 n1 p53-67 Mar 1998
In a study of development of automaticity in second-language word recognition, 105 English-speakers speaking French performed multiple lexical-decision tasks, and differences in coefficient of variation of lexical decision reaction time were compared cross- sectionally and longitudinally. Results confirm that with extended learning experience, the cognitive components underlying word recognition are restructured (automatized) and not simply sped up. (Author/MSE)
