Mackey, Alison and Adams, R. and Stafford, C. and Winke, P. (2010) Exploring the relationship between modified output and working memory capacity. Language Learning, 60 (3). pp. 501-533. ISSN 0023-8333Full text not available from this repository.
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.
