The Communicative Effectiveness of Different Types of Communication Strategy.
System, v31 n3 p331-47 Sep 2003
Examines compensation strategies--techniques for dealing with knowledge gaps between learner and interlocutor--used by French learners of English and relates them to synoptic and ectenic learning. Suggests reasons that ectenic learners, who need conscious control of what they are learning, seem to communicate meanings of words to judges better than synoptics, who feel freer to rely on their intuition and pre-conscious processing.
