The Role of Working and Short-Term Memory in L2 Learning
D. E. Dardon, P. J. Wanner
The role of working and short-term memory in second language grammar learning will be explored. The study seeks to answer the questions “Does memory have a significant role in specific language learning?” and, if a correlation is found, “which, working memory or short-term memory, has a more important role in that learning?” Most research concerning second language learning and memory has focused on vocabulary and general grammatical abilities. However, more studies targeting specific elements of language learning, for example specific grammatical constructions, are needed in order to explain in detail the relationship between second language learning and memory.
