How Effective is Interactive Learning? Investigating Japanese University Students' Language Patterns in a Collaborative Writing Task

Mitsuyo Sakamoto
2018 IAFOR Journal of Language Learning  
This paper therefore argues that the extent of languaging is significantly influenced by affective factors.  ...  The task resulted in 54 topic strands. Each student was tracked to see if his/her language use reflected the output of others.  ...  Upon completion of the online writing task and after the online transcripts were analyzed (i.e., October), all subjects were invited to share orally in class their reaction towards the task.  ...

Tasks and timing in the perception of linguistic anomaly

Janet Dean Fodor, Weijia Ni, Stephen Crain, Donald Shankweiler
1996 Journal of Psycholinguistic Research  
This narrows the possible explanations for any delays that are observed in the use of pragmatic information for ambiguity resolution.  ...  Three experiments were conducted to investigate the relative timing of syntactic and pragmatic anomaly detection during sentence processing. Experiment 1 was an eye movement study.  ...  However, when the lexical decision RT data are analyzed for the two groups separately, it. appears that the comprehension tasks made an interesting (unanticipated) difference to lexical decision performance  ...

Alternation-based generalizations are stored in the mental grammar: Evidence from a sorting task experiment

Florent Perek
2012 Cognitive Linguistics  
In our study, we devised a sorting task that subjects could resolve by relying on generalizations of either of these two kinds.  ...  This paper explores what status such pairs of constructions can be given in construction grammar, on the basis of a sorting task experiment.  ...  The locative variant construes the event as an action by the agent on the theme, causing it to move, whereas the with-variant construes it as an action affecting the location, and the motion of the theme  ...

Differential recall of derived and inflected word forms in working memory: examining the role of morphological information in simple and complex working memory tasks

Elisabet Service, Sini Maury
2015 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
This was explored in a within-subjects Experiment 4 combining all three tasks. An interaction between morphological complexity and task was replicated.  ...  Working memory (WM) has been described as an interface between cognition and action, or a system for access to a limited amount of information needed in complex cognition.  ...  surface form frequencies in Finnish.  ...

When a Stone Tries to Climb up a Slope: The Interplay between Lexical and Perceptual Animacy in Referential Choices

Jorrig Vogels, Emiel Krahmer, Alfons Maes
2013 Frontiers in Psychology  
In two animation-retelling experiments, conducted in Dutch, we investigated the influence of lexical and perceptual animacy on the choice of referent and the choice of referring expression.  ...  The results show that while only lexical animacy appears to affect the choice of subject referent, perceptual animacy may overrule lexical animacy in the choice of referring expression.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The second author thanks The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for VICI grant "Bridging the Gap between Computational Linguistics and Psycholinguistics: The Case of  ...
