Myles, Florence; Hooper, Janet; Mitchell, Rosamond
Language Learning, v48 n3 p323-64 Sep 1998
Investigates the role in learning of rote-learned formulas or chunks. Data were examined from a longitudinal study of 16 child beginner classroom learners of French for occurrences of three chunks, against which definitional criteria were tried out. These forms were then tracked for two years to chart their breakdown and explore their contribution to the development of a creative language capacity. (Author/JL)
