Study on the English Learning from the Perspective of Cognitive Psychology

HE XIAO, HONGYU XIE

Abstract


For a long time, syntactic system has been portrayed as fundamental and pervasive in language learning. But there is an alternative perspective in recent years, which suggests that language is much more lexical than usually accepted, particularly when real-time processing is concerned. Based on a research on a story-reproduction task among sophomores which is designed and conducted by the author, this paper intends to prove that an analytic system is often bypassed and the pressures of real-time communication are relied on during rapid communication and on large chunks of memorized language.

Keywords
