I. Background of Study
Language is a very important aspect for human life because it is means of communication that can help people share ideas, wants, and anything else. Carrol (2008, p. 3) stated...
these research questions are related to the larger issues raised in the introduction.
Describe what specific claim, hypothesis, and/or model of psycholinguistics you will evaluate with these questions.
Explain what it will show about the psychology of language if your hypothesis is confirmed.

Psycholinguistics has studied encoding and lexical access of words, sentence level processes of parsing and representation, and general representations of concepts...

Psycholinguistics is a subfield of applied linguistics, and it is a part of cognitive science. It was born in 1950s, and it is concerned with language processing and language acquisition. It’s divided into two major areas: experimental psycholinguistics and developmental psycholinguistics. Experimental...
early immersion in a second language can facilitate a child's second language learning by taking advantage of his or her special neurolinguistic, psycholinguistic, and cognitive capacities to learn language (Genesee 1984; Lambert, 1984 cited in Lindholm, 1992). Fourth, language input to the students is adjusted...

Her understanding of transfer is based on the definition of ‘crosslinguistic influence’ proposed by Sharwood Smith and Kellerman (1986): It is a psycholinguistic term referring to the influence on the learner which one language system he or she possesses may have on another language system.
