Research on input processing (IP) to date has focused largely on sentences and acquisition of morphosyntax. Other research has addressed IP at the lexical level for different aspects of vocabulary acquisition. This chapter clarifies how understanding multilevel IP can improve our understanding of… read more | Chapter
This chapter reviews theoretical and research foundations of input-based incremental (IBI) vocabulary instruction (Barcroft 2004a, 2005, 2012) and exhibits how the IBI approach can be used to promote effective second language (L2) vocabulary instruction. It first considers key concepts (such as… read more | Article
