A Response to Truscott's "What's Wrong with Oral Grammar Correction."
Lyster, Roy; Lightbown, Patsy M.; Spada, Nina
Canadian Modern Language Review, v55 n4 p457-67 Jun 1999
Response to criticism of oral grammar correction in second-language (L2) instruction which argues that while there are challenges and complexities in providing effective feedback, error correction should not be abandoned. Continued systematic, rigorous research to investigate whether different types of feedback are more effective, and to what extent this depends on instructional contexts and learner characteristics is recommended.
