Sagarra and Herschensohn, But because there are few empirical studies comparing populations of adults who acquired Spanish gender at different ages e. This study investigates knowledge and processing of Spanish gender by using psycholinguistic methods to measure both accuracy and reaction times of gender agreement.
The goal was to assess acceptability judgments of gender agreement based on noun gender masculine vs. The research questions guiding the study were: The task consisted of a series of NPs displayed one at a time on a computer screen.
There were 60 target inanimate nouns: In addition, all nouns were two or three syllables, and were accompanied by the definite article and an adjective overtly marked for gender.
Participants saw each noun in three experimental conditions: Thus, there were 60 nouns, each presented 3 times for a total of experimental items. Preliminary findings support full access accounts of L2 acquisition cf. Due to similar levels of both accuracy and reaction time, analysis suggests that both advanced early and late bilinguals have gender in their underlying grammars, and that their processing systems are fundamentally identical cf.

The Effects of Age and Context of Acquisition. Sagarra, Nuria, and Julia Herschensohn. Therefore, the same experience could be described in diverse ways by speakers of different first language L1 backgrounds. In addition, we would like to explore whether proficiency and stays in the L2 country can play a role in the acquisition of the patterns under analysis. Additionally, data from fifteen native speakers of Greek was also collected.
The instruments consisted of an oral picture description task that included four target items, and a questionnaire in which participants provided information about their linguistic profile. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses were performed.
The results of the study provide evidence for the thinking-for-speaking hypothesis, given the fact that significant differences where found between the patterns used by native speakers of Greek and Greek L2 learners. The first group used single verbs, whereas the second tended to use periphrases.
Even in advanced proficiency levels and after relatively long stays in Greece, traces of L1 based patterns could still be detected. The influence of these patterns, however, is stronger at the initial stages of language learning and it decreases as proficiency improves.

The impact of learners' gender and level of engagement on interaction: Although this issue has not been researched very often in SLA, within the framework of the Interaction Hypothesis IH Longwhich claims that conversational interaction facilitates L2 learning, MF differences in task-based interaction may play an important role. There is also research that has shown that learners might have more learning opportunities when their level of engagement while carrying out tasks is high Storch, Learning opportunities were operationalized as language-related episodes LREsas they have been claimed to be a site where L2 learning might occur Adams ; Kim ; Swain and Lapkin, If there are MF and level of engagement differences in the production of LREs in each task, they might have an impact on the benefits learners obtain from interaction.
About twenty hours of conversational interaction were transcribed and codified and LREs were analyzed on the basis of their nature form or meaning and outcome resolved or unresolved.
The findings showed that i there were significant differences between both task modalities when tasks were completed by males but not when they were completed by females; ii there were significant differences in nature and outcome of LREs depending on task modality: These findings will be commented on in light of recent research on the importance of individual variables and task-modality in task-based interaction.

Indeed, motivation has always been related to the most subjective part of the individual and it is full of nuances. Our aim is to examine and contrast motivation and achievement in a population of university students. The present work is part of a longitudinal study which aims at observing the evolution of the motivational state of participants together with their evolution in their L2 level. A group of 75 students of the Primary Education degree, specializing in teaching English, took part in the study.
They were tested on their English skills and vocabulary, as well as their motivational profiles. At the end of this degree students will have been exposed to hours of Content and Language Integrated Learning.

Those who champion the importance of writing research in SLA point to the important implications for theory, research, and pedagogy that may derive from the exploration of the processes and purposes of writing programs in a variety of contexts Leki, ; Casanave,including those in which writing plays an integral part and which are often overlooked by research, which seems to be primarily concerned with tertiary education in SL settings Leki, ; Reichelt, ; Tarnopolsky, Out-of-school learning contexts are very popular in many FL contexts and yet they have hardly featured at all in published research, hence the theoretical and pedagogical relevance 24 of expanding the available empirical evidence with a study like the one reported in this presentation, in which we explored EFL writing in a for-profit language school with the ultimate aim of contributing to L2 writing research and pedagogy.
As this out-of-school context differs from the traditional classroom, a conceptual framework was necessary to guide our inquiry.

The study was carried out in an English language school in the city of XXX. The main data source were interviews conducted with the school management and the teachers, the later focusing on the 4 dimensions targeted in the research. Following qualitative research conventions cf. Inter-rater reliability was sought with the help of a second coder. The results offer a picture of the processes at work in writing instruction in this context. Feedback approaches served primarily to prepare students for official exams.
These data will be reported and implications for the learning and teaching of FL writing will be discussed. When teaching and learning English prosody if anytraditionally, too much attention is paid to a list of different prosodic patterns which are associated arbitrarily with a set of communicative effects or meanings, at the expense of giving an opportunity to the learner to understand and learn the system underlying such patterns, which, in fact, goes hand in hand with specific pragmatic effects.
In order to understand better the process of the acquisition of L2 English prosody and to ultimately improve its learning, we undertake a series of perception and production experiments which evaluate individually the acquisition of the following parameters: The experimental design integrates prosody and pragmatic effects Prieto and Roseanoas it incorporates brief contextual descriptions which set the 25 frame for understanding the pragmatic meaning for each pair of stimuli presented in the cases of testing the acquisition of tonicity and tone.
The individual stimulus for the perception test consists of an audio recording performed by a trained phonetician of tshirt slogans of the type This land is your land.
Each t-shirt slogan is recorded twice, so that one rendition is produced with a natural intonation pattern, and the other rendition shows an unnatural intonation pattern.
As for the production test, subjects are asked to utter and record their own rendition of contextualized t-shirt slogans. In addition, we adopt a pre-test and post-test methodology with a group of B2-level learners of English who run the test before and after they are introduced to each one of the aforementioned parameters, all of which results in four sets of data.
The results for tonality reveal an improvement between the perception pre-test and post-test situations, as shown in figure 1. Thus, the mean statistical value of correct responses increases from 50,47 in the perception pre-test, to 51,53 in the post-test. Furthermore, the minimal statistical value of correct responses improves from 44 in the pre-test to 47 in the post-test, while the maximal statistical value of correct responses remains stable, 56, in the pre-test and the post-test. In sum, our findings have methodological implications for teaching and learning processes of L2 English prosody, and help us understand the specific role of perception and production therein.

Phonological short-term memory PSTM is involved in the processing of verbal-acoustic information Baddeley A crucial issue is the extent to which language specific long-term phonological representations might influence measures of PSMT.
The aim of the present study is two-fold. The test consisted of 24 natural stimuli spoken by 3 male and 3 female speakers of SBE.
English vocabulary proficiency was tested with the X-lex Meara, and Y-lex vocabulary tests Miralpeix and Meara This suggests that PSTM is an important factor in the discrimination of L2 vowel contrasts, which might allow for the development of two different categories that will ultimately be represented in long-term memory.

Nonparametric index for sensitivity and bias: From the basque biz derived the greek bios, with the same meaning: And from the previous form comes the spanish briz synonymous with life as well as several Greek words also related to the birth of life: Catalan, synonymous with VIVA!! Brixia was the cradle of humanity and hence the French berceau, the Catalan bressol Spanish and Heather In other words the first humanity Is not it crystal clear that this pride of stock and primogeniture is at the root of that arrogance and cockiness they are commonly attributed to and as we all have verified numerous times in our lives, is much more than a mere topic or commonplace?
Where does the name Bizkaya come from? Documented that Hespere was the real name of the Atlantis, there is a very old text from Maximus of Tyre where he certified that the famous island was in northern Spain, in HESPER and, second, proves that it was precisely an island: It is a very high mountain and pierced Two of the most important and most reliable historians of antiquity, Diodorus of Sicily and Iulius Solino, when they talk about the island on which was conceived the Son of God, Dionysus, ancestor of all human beings, they indicate us his birth happened in Hesper This Nysa was located on an island formed by the river Triton.
It was true Spain, which gave name to Sparta, thats why there are spartas found in the Iberian place names starting with the city of Cartagena, which was once known as Espartaria. Thats why the Greek traveler and geographer Pausanias said speaking of the first settlers of Greece, that A beautiful thing that can test right away, remembering that the real name of the Redder diamonds was Adamantes and because of this, there is a shade of red which still known as adamantine.
Because of this, the history of the novel Cavalry of spain is full of errant knights that match names such as Rhadamanthus, Rodomonte All of them, who would have told you! Decades of study I have devoted to reconstruct how human language was born and developed, have allowed me to know that many words in which one letter d in intermediate position, shown are the result of corruption older terms which these were originally D's were originally R's Although the manipulating Judeo-Christian have manipulated the Bible, the fact is that when the Holy Book has to call the Garden of Eden, it calls it simply the land of Aran.
Thats the same as saying the RED Earth That was one of the ancient Egyptians were known originating whose identification was relatively simple, thanks precisely to the presence derivatives of Aran in it. The Earthly Paradise or land of Aran Once we discovered that the earthly paradise was known as Aran and assuming the first human being Adam, is but an idealization of his, we become aware of why immediately that the Basque country, which is the undisputed cradle of humanity, seeded places and mountain massifs that match as spectacular names like these is found: Until the Last Glacial hovered over this country and its people chose to migrate eastward in search of warmer regions Who were the Residents of the Basque country when these climatic events occurred, leading to the first Great Diaspora Humanity?
And Red is also the meaning of the word ARENA that, rather than sand beaches, fed bleached by sunlight, can document any fragment of red sandstone The same happens with our ancestors harinas produced and whose ocher hues had nothing to do with the very refined flours we know today.
