Working memory and L2 English speakers’ primed and subsequent production of passives
Although first language researchers have investigated the relationship between individual differences and structural priming (Kaschak, Kutta, & Jones 2011; Kidd 2012a, b), fewer studies have explored this relationship in second language (L2) speech production (McDonough, Kielstra, Crowther, & Smith 2016). This chapter describes an empirical study that tested the relationship between English L2 speakers’ (N = 64) primed and subsequent production of passives and working memory. Results indicated a significant positive correlation between the participants’ primed production and working memory scores, but only when no intervening material occurred between prime and target sentences. Furthermore, there was no relationship between their subsequent production of passives and working memory scores. Implications are discussed in terms of dual-account explanations of structural priming.
