Pervasiveness of Shallow Processing
Sekerina, Irina A.; Brooks, Patricia J.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v27 n1 p84-88 2006
Clahsen and Felser (CF) offer a novel explanation for the qualitative differences in language processing often observed between adult first language (L1) speakers and second language (L2) learners. They argue that, although L2 learners are successful in drawing on lexical, morphological, and pragmatic sources of information, they underutilize syntactic structure, which results in shallower and less detailed processing than that of native speakers.
