Abstract

This study examines the relationship between learners’ production of modified output and their working memory (WM) capacity. The task-based interactions of 42 college-level, native English-speaking learners of Spanish as a foreign language were examined. A relationship was found between learners’ WM test scores and their tendency to modify output. Specifically, greater processing capacity was related to greater production of modified output during interaction.
