On the Inseparability of Grammar and the Lexicon: Evidence from Acquisition, Aphasia and Real-time Processing

Elizabeth Bates Judith C. Goodman
1997 Language and Cognitive Processes  
In a review of findings from language development, language breakdown and real-time processing, we conclude that the case for a modular distinction between grammar and the lexicon has been overstated,  ...  Studies of language breakdown in older children and adults provide no evidence for a modular dissociation between grammar and the lexicon; some structures are especially vulnerable to brain damage (e.g  ...  NIH/NINDS P50 NS22343 ("Center for the Study of the Neural Bases of Language and Learning"), and by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T.  ...

Selective Attention and Transfer Phenomena in L2 Acquisition: Contingency, Cue Competition, Salience, Interference, Overshadowing, Blocking, and Perceptual Learning

Nick C. Ellis
2006 Applied Linguistics  
Paradoxically, the successes of L1 acquisition and the limitations of L2 acquisition both derive from the same basic learning principles.  ...  If first language is rational in the sense that acquisition produces an end-state model of language that is a proper reflection of input and that optimally prepares speakers for comprehension and production  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I thank Gabi Kasper, Martin Bygate, Robert DeKeyser, anonymous Applied Linguistics Readers, and Diane Larsen-Freeman, Usha Lakshmanan, and University of Michigan ELI 692 students for insightful  ...

Unveiling linguistic competence by facilitating performance

Kitaek Kim
2015 Language Acquisition  
First of all, I would like to give my deepest thanks to Bonnie D. Schwartz and William O'Grady, who are my academic parents and role models.  ...  I have been constantly impressed (sometimes, overwhelmed) by their superb intellect, keen insight, marvelous preciseness, and vast knowledge.  ...  The general problem-solving system is not well-equipped to deal with language acquisition, and hence the process (and product) of adult L2 acquisition is fundamentally different from that of child language  ...

The role of child-directed speech in language acquisition: a case study

Paul Matychuk
2005 Language Sciences  
The data generated by the subject and his parents provide an interesting glimpse into one of the ways in which infants absorb language.  ...  Far from being merely a novel way of describing the language caregivers use with infants, CDS is presented as a crucial catalyst in the complex process of L1 acquisition.  ...  Grateful thanks also go to my children, Natasha and Michael, and to my wife, Takako, who inspires me daily.  ...

, and from the prism of cross-linguistic influences.  ...  Empirical evidence for linguistic relativity is reviewed from the perspectives of first language influences on cognition, including color, motion, number, time, objects, and nonlinguistic representations  ...  Klein et al. ( 2013 ) also show that a direct comparison of Italian-speaking children to German-speaking children further corroborates the previous findings that language affects cognitive number processing  ...

Orthographic variations and visual information processing

Daisy L. Hung, Ovid J. Tzeng
1981 Psychological bulletin  
Results from such comparisons of reading behaviors across different orthographies suggest that human visual information processing is indeed affected by orthographic variation, but only at the lower levels  ...  It is noted that this trend of development seems to coincide with the trend of cognitive development of children.  ...  Hence, for a general understanding of reading behavior, cross-language comparisons of visual information processing strategies should provide valuable clues to the underlying mechanisms and processes involved  ...
