Introduction Studies of Bilingual Processing Presented to Kenneth I. Forster, Jiang, Nan (ed.), pp. 201–2032021
Orthographic friends and lexical strangers in the L2 lexicon Studies of Bilingual Processing Presented to Kenneth I. Forster, Jiang, Nan (ed.), pp. 224–2442021
Some recent studies demonstrated a lexical processing difference between L1 and L2. In a lexical decision task, masked word primes had an inhibitory or no effect on the identification of their neighbor targets (e.g., reason-SEASON) in L1, but they produced a faciliatory priming effect in L2. The… read more | Article
Chapter 6. Semantic processing and development in Chinese as a second language Writing Systems, Reading Processes, and Cross-Linguistic Influences: Reflections from the Chinese, Japanese and Korean Languages, Pae, Hye K. (ed.), pp. 121–1362018
Languages differ in the semantic structures underlying their linguistic forms.

This chapter reviews recent studies that examined three topics related to semantic processing and… read more | Chapter
Chapter 9. Semantic integration in listening comprehension in a second language: Evidence from cross-modal priming Applying priming methods to L2 learning, teaching and research: Insights from Psycholinguistics, Trofimovich, Pavel and Kim McDonough (eds.), pp. 199–2182011
A cross-modal priming task was used to examine listening comprehension by second language speakers. Participants were asked to perform a written lexical decision task on targets that were presented in different auditory sentential contexts. The context and the target were congruent (i.e., the… read more | Article
