Interlanguage Talk: What Can Breadth of Knowledge Features Tell Us about Input and Output Differences?

  title={Interlanguage Talk: What Can Breadth of Knowledge Features Tell Us about Input and Output Differences?},
  author={Scott Andrew Crossley and Danielle S. McNamara},
  booktitle={FLAIRS Conference},
The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of breadth of knowledge lexical features in non native speakers' (NNS) input and output. Our primary interest is analyzing potential breadth of knowledge lexical differences in the output of NNSs when engaged in interlanguage talk (NNS NNS) and when engaged in naturalistic speech with a native speaker (NS). We are also interested in input differences for NNSs when engaged in interlanguage talk and when speaking with NSs To analyze these…

Frequency effects in language acquisition: A review with implications for theories of implicit and explicit language acquisition. (Target article)
This article shows how language processing is intimately tuned to input frequency in the processing of phonology, phonotactics, reading, spelling, lexis, morphosyntax, formulaic language, language comprehension, grammaticality, sentence production, and syntax.

The articles in this special issue explore how the acquisition of linguistic constructions as form–function mappings is affected by the distribution and saliency of forms in oral input, by their
The development of semantic relations in second language speakers: A case for Latent Semantic Analysis
The findings demonstrate that the LSA value reported by Coh-Metrix can be used to approximate lexical growth and that L2 learners likely begin to develop tighter semantic relations between utterances and words within a short period of time.
Linguistic and Conversational Adjustments to Non-Native Speakers
