Abstract:Results revealed that (1) L2 learners use auditory word priming when they are acquiring an L2, (2) the extent to which they do so depends upon L2 learners' attention to the form of spoken input, and (3) L2 learners over-rely on detailed information about spoken words (e.g., information about a speaker's voice) as they use auditory word priming. These findings indicated that auditory word priming is both an implicit and crucial learning mechanism involved in the processing and learning of L2 speech. These findings also indicated that the extent of this involvement depends upon the nature of spoken L2 input and the processing demands imposed on the learner by a learning task.
