Example text

As time progresses more and more ‘regular’ past tense mappings are learned and the collaboration of these exemplars of form-past tense mapping pull the learner back to the go-ed form. There is not scope here to do more than introduce this matter – a more complete explanation for the particular case of regular and irregular morphosyntax can be found in Ellis and Schmidt (1998: 330–333) and we will return to the general issues in subsequent sections of this chapter which concern cognitive linguistics and the connectionist modelling.

On the other hand, Warden, Lapkin, Swain, and Hart (1995) found no particular relationship between the quantity and quality of linguistic observations recorded by high school students of French in their journals during a summer exchange program and their progress as reflected in test scores. This might be because some learners found their language Attention 19 observations more worthy of report than did others, but as Tomlin and Villa point out, the essential weakness of diary studies is that their temporal granularity is too coarse: ‘Diary studies encompass spans of time as large as several weeks, but the cognitive processing of L2 input takes place in relatively brief spans of time, seconds or even parts of seconds’ (1994: 185).

Kellogg and Dare (1989), who argue that both attended and unattended encoding are possible, emphasize that this ‘does not imply that unattended encoding has any practical value . . [since] the degree of elaboration resulting from unattended encoding appears to be too limited to have any substantive influence on human cognition or behaviour’ (p. 412). In fact, if we are less able to access previously ignored information than completely new information, we might have an explanation, not for development in language learning, but for non-learning through habituation of the self-instruction to ignore something.
