Implicit and explicit memory performance in bilinguals: Implications for transfer-appropriate processing and vocabulary learning

Elva Natalia Strobach, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

Two experiments examined whether translation and sentence context improved memory performance in explicit and implicit memory. For explicit memory, an effect of translation was found such that translation led to better item recognition than read aloud encoding. Sentence context did not benefit recognition memory performance. For implicit memory, neither translation nor sentence context led to priming in a word-stem completion paradigm. The results are discussed in terms of the transfer-appropriate processing framework. ^
