Recasts as Feedback to Language Learners.
Nicholas, Howard; Lightbown, Patsy M.; Spada, Nina
Language Learning, v51 n4 p719-58 Dec 2001
Reviews research on the effectiveness of recasts in first and second language acquisition, paying particular attention to how recasts have been defined and how their impact has been assessed in observational and experimental studies. Concludes that recasts appear to be most effective in contexts where it is clear to the learner that the recast is a reaction to the accuracy of form of the original utterance. (Author/VWL)
