Integration of newly learned L2 words into the mental lexicon is modulated by vocabulary learning method

Abstract : The aim of the study was to investigate both L2 word integration and the effect of learning method on it. For this purpose, an L2 word-learning paradigm was designed with two learning methods: L2 words were paired with videos in the first one and their translation-equivalent L1 words in the second. To test L2 word integration, a lexical decision task associated with form priming was administered before and after the learning phase. The L2 words to be learned were used as primes. Forty-eight participants participated in the study. Before learning, a facilitation effect was obtained with pseudowords (not already learned L2 words) as primes and L1 words as targets. After learning, L2 words no longer facilitated L1 word recognition when learned with the video method, while they still had this effect when learned with the L1 words – L2 words method. In accordance with the prime lexicality effect (PLE), this absence of a facilitation effect indicates that L1 words and L2 words are involved in a lexical competition process common to the two languages. This result highlights swift lexicalisation and demonstrates the effect of learning method in lexicalisation.
