Institution: University of Wisconsin Madison
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: By differentiating among four different types of output, the paper sees their roles are also different. And learners of different language proficiency should be guided to produce different types of output. Thus the paper introduces a new concept, namely 'optimal output'. Blindly making the learner produce output which is far beyond his current English level will only do harm to his interlanguage development, making it fossilize at an earlier stage.
