Book Information


Title: Applying priming methods to L2 learning, teaching and research
Subtitle: Insights from Psycholinguistics
Edited By: Pavel Trofimovich
Kim McDonough
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 30

This volume features a collection of empirical studies which use priming
methods to explore the comprehension, production, and acquisition of second
language (L2) phonology, syntax, and lexicon. The term priming refers to
the phenomenon in which prior exposure to specific language forms or meanings
influences a speaker’s subsequent language comprehension or production. This
book brings together the various strands of priming research into a single
volume that specifically addresses the interests of researchers, teachers, and
students interested in L2 teaching and learning. Chapters by internationally
known scholars feature a variety of priming techniques, describe various
psycholinguistic tasks, and focus on different domains of language knowledge
and skills. The book is conceptualized with a wide audience in mind, including
researchers not familiar with priming methods and their application to L2
research, graduate students in second language acquisition and related
disciplines, and instructors who require readings for use in their courses.
