Example text

Like other dynamic systems, language develops non-linearly and is affected not only by input, but also by interactions between its componential subsystems, such as specific languages known. Within these languages, another level of subsystems such as grammar, vocabulary and phonology can be considered as nested, interacting subsystems. The dyna­mic nature of ­language development is further emphasized by the initial state and varied resources. Some of the resources, such as working memory capacity and language learning aptitude, are inherently limited for a parti­cular learner, while other resources, such as motivation, are more easily affected by the sociolinguistic setting in which the language is learned.

Clearly, FonFs activities, which are not communicative and not authentic, are, nevertheless, effective for vocabulary learning. Particularly so are activities that require retrieving the word itself and using it, that is, productive activities. Rosszell’s (2003) learners remembered over 50% of the target words on a delayed test of active knowledge, Kitajima’s (2001) – over 80%. Moreover, there is some evidence from Horst et al. (2005) that learners show interest in productive activities. When given a choice of various computer exercises, they took the trouble to generate novel cloze passages where they had to replace the target words in gaps in texts of their own choosing.
