Effects of Questions about Word Meaning during L2 Spanish Lexical Learning.
Barcroft, Joe
Modern Language Journal, v87 n4 p546-61 Win 2003
Concerned the effects of questions about word meaning during an immediate lexical learning task. English-speaking learners of Spanish as a second language attempted to learn 24 new Spanish words while viewing word-picture pairs. Results indicated significantly greater cued-recall scores in the no questions condition than in the questions condition, a finding that provided evidence for a potentially inhibitory effect of semantic elaboration.
