Tskhovrebova, Ekaterina; Zufferey, Sandrine; Gygax, Pascal – Language Learning, 2022
Many connectives, such as "therefore" and "however," are used very frequently in the written modality. Their acquisition thus represents an important milestone in developing written language competences. In this article, we assess the development of competence with such connectives by native French speakers in a sentence-level…

Kim, Hyunwoo; Hwang, Haerim – Language Learning, 2022
Extending previous findings on adult L2 learners' integration of verbal and constructional information, this study investigated how child learners of English as a foreign language produce verbs in target constructions and whether (a) receptive skills and (b) the specific production modality (spoken versus written) modulate the integration process.…

Giancaspro, David; Perez-Cortes, Silvia; Higdon, Josh – Language Learning, 2022
Previous research indicates that heritage speakers (HSs) of Spanish produce both subjunctive and indicative mood in expected subjunctive contexts. The present study sheds new light on this pattern by testing the effects of morphological regularity on HSs' mood production in volitional contexts, where Spanish-dominant speakers (e.g.,…

Siu, Tik-Sze Carrey; Ho, Suk-Han Connie – Language Learning, 2022
The present study compared Chinese-English bilinguals and English monolinguals within three age groups to examine whether bilinguals have an advantage in syntactic processing. Participants were tested on morphosyntactic awareness, word-order awareness, artificial syntax learning, and general cognitive abilities. Bilinguals within the three age…

Lee, Jang Ho; Lee, Hansol – Language Learning, 2022
This article reports a meta-analysis of studies on the effects of teachers' verbal lexical explanation (TVLE), as one type of lexical focus on form, on second language vocabulary learning. The dataset for this meta-analysis included 14 studies, representing a total of 36 independent samples (N = 3,304). The results of this study reveal that TVLE…

Morgan-Short, Kara; Finestrat, Irene; Luque, Alicia; Abugaber, David – Language Learning, 2022
In this exploratory study, we considered the method of combining event-related potentials (ERPs) and source attributions as a means for examining the explicit or implicit nature of second language (L2) knowledge and processing. We recorded electroencephalograms while L2 Spanish participants judged phrase structure and subject-verb agreement…

Alshehri, Mona G.; Zhang, Dongbo – Language Learning, 2022
This study compared how distinct lexical competences, including lexical knowledge as well as processing skills at both word/lexical and sublexical/morphological levels, collectively and relatively predict reading comprehension in adult learners of English as a foreign language (EFL). The participants were 220 Arabic-speaking EFL learners in a…

Azkarai, Agurtzane; Oliver, Rhonda; Gil-Berrio, Yohana – Language Learning, 2022
The interactionist hypothesis holds that conversational interaction facilitates second language (L2) learning by providing learners opportunities to receive meaningful input, modify their output, and attend to language form. Although research has often explored the efficacy of different types of L2 instruction (deductive or inductive), few studies…

Davin, Kristin J.; Kushki, Ali – Language Learning, 2022
Situated within Sociocultural theory (SCT), this article analyzed an existing data set (Toth, 2021a, 2021b, 2021c, available at https://www.iris-database.org) to investigate learners' development through participation in a dialogic approach to grammar instruction called PACE. The target of instruction was the Spanish pronominal clitic…

Mattson-Prieto, Raquel; Showstack, Rachel – Language Learning, 2022
This study investigated classroom interaction through the framework of "stancetaking" (Du Bois, 2007) to understand how Spanish second language (L2) learners positioned themselves when participating in communicative language learning activities. Data came from transcribed audio and video recordings of three 90-minute lessons in one…

Ranta, Leila – Language Learning, 2022
Stern (1983) reminds us of the ethical reasons for doing second language (L2) research. That is, given the considerable human and financial investments that go into language education, the practical activities of teaching "should not exclusively rely on tradition, opinion, or trial-and-error but should be able to draw on rational enquiry,…

Wagner, Santoi; Park, Innhwa – Language Learning, 2022
This study demonstrates how conversation analysis can illuminate the interactional practices through which the Present-Attention-Co-construction-Extension (PACE) approach to grammar instruction, which involves a guided, inductive co-construction of grammar rules with learners, is realized in the classroom. The data consist of three whole-class…

Moranski, Kara; Zalbidea, Janire – Language Learning, 2022
This study employed a multisite design to investigate the differential impact of deductive and guided inductive instruction for second language (L2) grammar development in ecologically valid classroom contexts. Students (n = 138) from eight intact third-year L2 Spanish classes in three public high schools in the United States received deductive…

Juffs, Alan; Fang, Shaohua – Language Learning, 2022
This article focuses on the role of crosslinguistic patterns with verbs in the mapping of noun phrases/semantic roles to positions in morphosyntax, with a particular focus on second language (L2) development of Spanish "se." The data set derives from high school learners of Spanish in the United States under broadly deductive and…

Toth, Paul D.; Gil-Berrio, Yohana – Language Learning, 2022
This study examines learner deliberations over their discursive plans during second language (L2) instructional tasks, which we call "intersubjectivity negotiation episodes" (INEs). We argue that these provide essential contexts for negotiations over L2 form-meaning mappings, known as "language related episodes" (LREs). Our…
