Acoustic Variation and Lexical Acquisition.
Barcroft, Joe
Language Learning, v51 n4 p563-90 Dec 2001
Examined how acoustic variation affects second language (L2) lexical acquisition in consideration of four hypotheses: degraded input, elaborate processing, independent modulation, and robust versus strong connectivity. Beginners of L2 Spanish attempted to learn 24 Spanish words presented in 1 of 3 degrees of acoustic variation. Immediate and delayed lexical production posttests showed no significant differences between learning conditions. (Author/VWL)
