Title: The Implicit Learning of Mappings between Forms and Contextually Derived Meanings
Author: Janny H. C. Leung

Institution: Research Centre for English and Applied Linguistics University of Cambridge
Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition; Psycholinguistics
Abstract: The traditional implicit learning literature has focused primarily on the abstraction of statistical regularities in form-form connections. More attention has been recently directed toward the implicit learning of form-meaning connections, which might be crucial in the acquisition of natural languages. The current article reports evidence for implicit learning of a mapping between a novel set of determiners and thematic roles, obtained using a newly developed reaction time methodology. The results conclude that contextually derived form-meaning connections might be implicitly learned.
