Native speakers of Brazilian…

Chan, Tracy K. S.; Wong, Simpson W. L.; Wong, Anita M.-Y.; Leung, Vina Wing-Hei – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Past studies have shown that multimodal presentation of story can improve story-retelling performance in the first language. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether similar multimedia effects can be observed in second language learning and graphic novel reading. A total of 51 Chinese elementary school children, aged 7-8, who…

To investigate the narrative development of Chinese-speaking children aged 3--6 years, 80 children were prompted to tell personal stories. High point analysis was used and both narrative components and overall narrative patterns were analyzed. In terms of narrative components, Chinese children were more skillful in using complicating action,…

Ghaffarvand Mokari, Payam; Werner, Stefan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The present study attempts to extend the research on the effects of phonetic training on the production and perception of second-language (L2) vowels. We also examined whether success in learning L2 vowels through high-variability intensive phonetic training is related to the learners' general musical abilities. Forty Azerbaijani learners of…

The present study examined the locus responsible for the effect of emotional state on sentence processing in healthy native speakers of Japanese, using event-related brain potentials. The participants were induced into a happy, neutral, or sad mood and then subjected to electroencephalogram recording during which emotionally neutral sentences,…

Clarke, A. J. Benjamin; Ludington, Jason D. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Normative databases containing psycholinguistic variables are commonly used to aid stimulus selection for investigations into language and other cognitive processes. Norms exist for many languages, but not for Thai. The aim of the present research, therefore, was to obtain Thai normative data for the BOSS, a set of 480 high resolution color…

Jankowiak, Katarzyna; Korpal, Pawel – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Though previous research has shown a decreased sensitivity to emotionally-laden linguistic stimuli presented in the non-native (L2) compared to the native language (L1), studies conducted thus far have not examined how different modalities influence bilingual emotional language processing. The present experiment was therefore aimed at…

Ebadi, Saman; Weisi, Hiwa; Khaksar, Zahra – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Grit as an interesting and significant topic in psychology has been associated with better study habits and higher grades through perseverance and passion for long term goals. The only available measurement instrument of grit (Duckworth et al. in "J Personal Soc Psychol" 92:1087-1101, 2007) is general both in terms of its subject matter…

Rafiee Fazel, Amirabbas; Latifi, Mehdi; Moini, M. Raouf – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The variable success in learning a second language (L2) may be best explained by varying degrees of motivation. This study investigated whether individual differences in appraisal dimensions of motivation explained explicit and implicit syntactic knowledge. Participants learned three syntactic structures under implicit and explicit training…

Ceberio, Klara; Aduriz, Itziar; Díaz de Ilarraza, Arantza; Garcia-Azkoaga, Ines – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
In this paper we present the coreferential tagging of part of the EPEC Corpus of Basque. Although coreference is a pragmatic linguistic phenomenon highly dependent on the situational context, it shows some language-specific patterns that vary according to the features of each language. Due to the fact that Basque is not an Indo-European language,…

Huang, Fang; Hoi, Cathy Ka Weng; Teo, Timothy – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Learning style is one of the main factors that determines how students learn English and has a significant influence on students' learning strategy selection, which further affects their learning outcomes (Ehrman and Oxford in Mod Lang J 74(3):311-327, 1990; Oxford in Language learning styles and strategies: an overview, 2003.…

Hamdan, Jihad M.; Al-Hawamdeh, Rose Fowler – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
This empirical study examines the extent to which 'face', i.e. (audio visual dialogues), affects the listening comprehension of advanced Jordanian EFL learners in a TOFEL-like test, as opposed to its absence (i.e. a purely audio test) which is the current norm in many English language proficiency tests, including but not limited to TOFEL iBT,…

de Villiers, Jill; Ning, Chunyan; Liu, Xueman Lucy; Zhang, Yi Wen; Jiang, Fan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The comprehension of paired wh-questions is examined in child Mandarin, to compare the age of acquisition with that of children speaking European languages like English and German. In Study 1, participants were 734 Mandarin speakers aged 2;6-7;11, drawn from four regions of China. Results reveal a striking parallel between the acquisition of…
