Publisher Description

INTRODUCTION For any language, vocabulary plays a significant role. Without vocabulary, communication cannot happen in a meaningful way. Thus lexical researches have aroused more and more interest among linguists. And the study of mental lexicon has drawn special attention from researchers. In the past thirty years, there has been great development in lexical research. Researchers make great efforts to try revealing the organization of mental lexicon which contains an extremely large amount of information. By now, agreement has been reached on the organization of the first language (L1) mental lexicon. Researchers commonly agree that words in L1 mental lexicon are connected with each other semantically and are stored in mind around a semantic network. However, there is still disagreement among researchers on the organization of the second language (L2) mental lexicon. Three kinds of viewpoints have been advanced, namely phonological view, semantic view and syntactic view. With the application of word association test (WAT) to linguistic study, more and more researchers have started to use this efficient method in the study of L2 mental lexicon to try to find answers to this unsettled issue.
