    Abstract : Some studies have shown that the L1 mental lexicon is organized mainly on a semantic basis, while the organization of the L2 mental lexicon in the early stages of development is phonologically based, that is non-semantic, indicating a less profound lexical knowledge and eliciting a higher degree of nonnative-like associations. This study examines whether or not this is the case. READ MORE

    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Languages and linguistics; Språkvetenskap; General Linguistics; allmän språkvetenskap;

At the same time the dominant theoretical approach to answering them, generativism, has given rise to persistent anomalies and confusions. READ MORE
