The Implicit Learning of Mappings between Forms and Contextually Derived Meanings
Leung, Janny H. C.; Williams, John N.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v33 n1 p33-55 Mar 2011
The traditional implicit learning literature has focused primarily on the abstraction of statistical regularities in form-form connections. More attention has been recently directed toward the implicit learning of form-meaning connections, which might be crucial in the acquisition of natural languages. The current article reports evidence for implicit learning of a mapping between a novel set of determiners and thematic roles, obtained using a newly developed reaction time methodology. The results conclude that contextually derived form-meaning connections might be implicitly learned. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures, and 3 notes.)
