Comparing the L1 and L2 Mental Lexicon: A Depth of Individual Word Knowledge Model.
Wolter, Brent
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v23 n1 p41-69 Mar 2001
Explores the possibility that the first language and second language mental lexicon may be structurally similar, with depth of individual word knowledge determining a given word's degree of integration into the mental lexicon. Proposes a model for the process by which words are integrated into the mental lexicon and challenges the belief that a shift from predominantly syntagmatic to predominantly paradigmatic responses is indicative of lexical development.
