Word Association and the Mental Lexicon

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 6 March 2011 - 1:30pm - 3:30pm
Speaker: 
Carmen Hannah

With recent increasing interest in the teaching of vocabulary, the need for greater understanding of the nature and functions of the mental lexicon presents a growing challenge to researchers, teachers and students. This presentation examines how word association tests can be used to gain a better understanding of the mental lexicon for both L1 and L2 language learners and users. After illustrating some of the existing models of the mental lexicon, examination of how word association responses can be analyzed to reveal properties of some of the underlying principles of the structural organization and workings of the mental lexicon. Finally, some practical classroom implications for language teachers will be given.
