Phonological recoding in the second language processing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A phonological priming task was conducted in order to determine the presence of second language phonological recoding. Eighteen Koreans who had acquired English after a critical language learning period participated in the experiment. Compared with controls, the phonological condition (e.g., TOWED -> toad) was more advantageous in processing the target in the priming task than the orthographic condition (e.g., TOLD -> toad). This result indicates that second languages are learned and processed phonologically rather than orthographically.
