Sample text

Siegler (2006) points out that in a study that combined a micro-genetic and cross-sectional component (Siegler & Svetina 2002), the patterning of changes and non-changes proved to be quite comparable. The longitudinal and cross-sectional groups matched on 10 of the 11 indices of change that were examined. In contrast to the cross-sectional study, though, the longitudinal microgenetic study had yielded data that could show how the changes had taken place: Learners will reject and generate new strategies in two separate processes.

It is never a steady state (Dörnyei 2009). At the very least, then, we need to look for the causal interconnections, the ­reciprocity that occurs when one factor changes and influences another. Another AL example of reciprocal causality that can be perceived in dynamic systems is the co-adaptation that takes place between interlocutors. To cite a well-known example in our field, when a native speaker and a nonnative speaker of a given language interact, the native speaker may adjust his or her language to make it easier to process.

However, MacWhinney’s model emphasizes that in addition to pure frequency, the role of cue availability, validity and reliability helps determine the course of acquisition, which relates to the opacity of patterns. Cue availability refers to how often a cue is present in the input, and cue reliability refers to whether a cue is always used consistently. Cue validity is the product of cue availability and reliability. A fully valid cue is a cue that is always there when it needs to be for communication purposes (in other words, it is fully available) and that is used consistently (it is fully reliable).
