Exploring the Relationship between Modified Output and Working Memory Capacity
Mackey, Alison; Adams, Rebecca; Stafford, Catherine; Winke, Paula
Language Learning, v60 n3 p501-533 Sep 2010
This study examines the relationship between learners' production of modified output and their working memory (WM) capacity. The task-based interactions of 42 college-level, native English-speaking learners of Spanish as a foreign language were examined. A relationship was found between learners' WM test scores and their tendency to modify output. Specifically, greater processing capacity was related to greater production of modified output during interaction.
