The Research Advance for the Cognitive Mechanism of English New Word Learning—Phonological Loop or Phonological Sensitivity?
Two main theories in new word learning were Phonological Loop Model and Lexical Restructuring Theory. The two main theories focused on different aspects of how long-term lexical knowledge affects word learning: Phonological Loop Model focusing on phonological working memory and Lexical Restructuring Theory focusing on phonological sensitivity in phonological processing. Previous studies showed that both phonological working memory and phonological sensitivity were important to new word learning, especially phonological working memory influencing word learning directly. However, how phonological sensitivity affects word learning is still not clear. Future studies could use a new method to investigate the mechanism of how phonological working memory and phonological sensitivity affect word learning or integrate the two aspects to investigate word learning.
