Sample text

It seems likely that less proficient learners will be more inclined to use bottom-up processing than topdown processing, because their linkages to long-term memory in the second language have yet to be established. During the early stages of learning the second language, learners are building connections between the new language and knowledge about concepts that were acquired in their first language. The Bialystok and Ryan dimensions, to the extent that they rely upon linguistic knowledge rather than meaning-based concepts, are an analysis of bottom-up processing rather than top-down processing.

Anderson (1985) refers to this combination of phrases that have already been parsed as concatenation. Segmentation, or differentiation of language input into words or phrases, is essential for detecting meaning in either aural or written language. The size of the unit or segment (or "chunk") of information processed depends upon the learner's knowledge of the language, general knowledge of the topic, and how the information is presented (Richards 1983). The principal clue for segmentation in comprehension processes is meaning, which may be represented by one or some combination of syntactic, semantic, or — in listening — phonological features of the message (Anderson 1983,1985).

The learner's selection of a rule should be independent of whether the rule is formal or informal, but selection should depend upon the rule's utility in assisting the individual to address the communication task at hand. As individuals can shift from one rule to the next and may do so with minimal demands on attention when the skill has become proceduralized (see Chapter 3), they may shift from a grammatical to a sociolinguistic rule depending on the task demands. 19 on Fri Jun 14 07:10:29 WEST 2013.
