Book Information


Title: Using Priming Methods in Second Language Research
Written By: Kim McDonough
Pavel Trofimovich
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition Research Series

Using Priming Methods in Second Language Research is an accessible
introduction to the use of auditory, semantic, and syntactic priming
methods for second language (L2) processing and acquisition research. It
provides a guide for the use, design, and implementation of priming tasks
and an overview of how to analyze and report priming research. Key
principles about auditory, semantic, and syntactic priming are introduced,
and issues for L2 researchers to consider when designing priming studies
are pointed out. Empirical studies that have adopted priming methods are
highlighted to illustrate the application of experimental techniques from
psychology to L2 processing and acquisition research. Each chapter
concludes with follow-up questions and activities that provide additional
reinforcement of the chapter content, while the final chapter includes data
sets that can be used to practice the statistical tests commonly used with
priming data.
