Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether interactionally modified input and output promote the acquisition of new second language (L2) word meanings. Two experimental groups, the interactionally modified input group and the interactionally modified input with pushed output group, engaged in a listening task based on directions including 10 target words. The task between the two groups differed according to whether the participants had opportunities to modify their output. The result showed the effectiveness of both interactionally modified input and output on L2 vocabulary learning; however, the modified input with output group outperformed the modified input without output group. From a sociocultural perspective, the study also analyzed learner/learner interaction: collaborative dialogue between learners during the task for any signs of scaffolding. The dialogue indicated that, through collaborative work, the learners were encouraged to cooperate to achieve the goal and learn the meanings of the words effectively.
