Cobb, Tom; Horst, Marlise – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
The vocabulary research of the 1980s and 1990s brought a breath of fresh air into the language classroom.

This article argues that "triadic dialogue" (Lemke, 1990), much criticized in the past, has an important role to play in L2 learning and that its effectiveness should be judged in accordance with the particular pedagogical goals that it is made to serve. Drawing on three recent studies of L2 classrooms in a variety of instructional settings, the…
