After that combine the sounds and pronounce the word. Later he/she will think the meaning of the word. Top down Opposite to the bottom up process, top down process will decode meaning by, drawing on the listener 's own prior knowledge and expectations. This emphasizes on when we use knowledge of grammatical, syntactic and lexical rules to make meaning of what we want say. So we know Language processing involves the reconstruction of meaning through prior knowledge.
In order to communicate this proposition, they will encode it by using linguistic codes which are conventional to pair the meaning of the idea with physical forms (text, utterance). The hearers perceive the text or utterance, decode it and interpret the meaning by guessing what thought of the speakers it is most likely to convey. (Goatly,
It states that equivalence is achieved through the learner being exposed to reinforcements of language and a verbal community. Different researchers have come up with different ways to discriminate their procedures therefore the results vary. One such arbitrarily example is when a child learns to name objects and events in their world they are relational responding this according to behaviorist is a stimulus that can be link to many stimuli (Barnes-Holmes , Barnes-Holmes , Smeets , Cullinan, & Leader , 2004). It is important to note that equivalence stimuli is an empirical occurrence and RFT is the theory of how that occurrence came about; therefore they are different in many ways but can work together to derive results that can help researchers learn about the
3.2. Contrastive analysis hypothesis The habit formation theory as we saw in section 3.1 had a big influence on a pedagogic area. It was thought that L2 learner would have a trouble in acquiring linguistic items that have different features from their L1 and could acquire relatively easily linguistic items that have similar features to their L1 to the contrary. Then, on the basis of those thought, a new theory on a L2 acquisition and teaching theory appeared. The theory is called “contrastive analysis hypothesis (CAH)”.
In essence, chunking is established as one of the mechanisms for human cognition process. It is crucial in explaining the relationship between the external environment and the internal cognitive processes (Reed, 2010). Empirical evidence in support of the relevance of chunking theory exists, especially in relation to the way that humans perceive words, paragraphs and words as single units, overshadowing their representation as comprising of collections of phonemes or letters. For example, the chunking theory explains how skilled readers have a tendency to be insensitive to deleted or repeated words. Studies that use information concerning timing of responses to ascertain the presence of chunks exemplifies evidence on the relevance of the chunking theory are particularly useful in understanding effectiveness.
This article mainly focuses on the language transfer and fossilization, while also discussing the way in which error analysis and error correction can be improved through understanding of the concept of interlanguage. Moreover, native speaker norms, as well as international varieties of English are also discussed in this research. I believe that the research conducted by Nickel is a great addition to this bibliography because it allows some insight into the significance of the interlanguage phenomenon and helps to gain better understanding of the way in which it affects L2 learning and how it is perceived by others. Moreover, it helps to speculate about where it stands in regard to other varieties of English language and mentions a few instances in which interlanguages became institutionalized by people in certain countries.

); Conjunctive (Acon), or ‘discourse markers,’ this type signals how the clause as a whole coheres with the preceding textto create textual meanings, e.g. however, therefore, actually. Modal (Amod) which indicates the speaker’s degree of commitment to or viewpoint on what s/he is saying. It contribute to the interpersonal function and falls into two main groups. First, Comment Adjuncts which comment on the clause as whole and are separated off from the rest of the clause by commas such as ‘unfortunately’,' significantly',' admittedly' etc., as noted in Halliday and Matthiessen (2014, p. 191).
The discourse analyst focuses on â€œan investigation of what that language is used forâ€, it means purpose and aim of communication, as has actually been mentioned before (Yule 1983: 1). Levels of analysis Crystal (1997: 15) mentions a few levels of analysis which are highly important for a detailed analysis of a text. Each level represents one area of linguistics such as lexicology or phonetics and phonology. On the basis of these areas different levels of analysis can be distinguished: phonetic and phonological, graphological, grammatical, lexical. Verdonk mentions importance of pragmatics and claims that â€œpragmatics is concerned with the meaning of language in discourse, that is, when it is used in an appropriate context to get particular aimsâ€ (Verdonk 2002:
We use Wordnet to fetch the synonymous terms of a given word in the system. The system uses nltk's Wordnet wrapper to fetch the synonyms of the word. But replacing a word with its synonym does not always generate the correct replacement. It might happen that the synonym of the word might be out of context in which it was used. For resolving the above situation we need to combine the Lexical Simplification system with a Language Model.
