Le lexique mental L2 : Connexions et associations

Abstract : The recent appearence of connectionist models of parallel processing derives from our current knowledge of the human brain. According to these models, lexical items are represented in the mind in the form of entries connected up into a vast network ; it is this highly complex adaptive system which gives rise to our extremly rapid and efficient lexical entry : any trait which is common to two or more entries is liable to generate a connection. As regards the learner who has lexical knowledge of two language systems in his mind, the nature of the connections between items of the two languages is crucial for any model of the 12 mental lexicon. The many possibilities of connections between the two lexicons are therefore examined in detail. The model presented is backed up by interlinguistic word association experiments, which are argued to provide an invaluable (if indirect and thus often neglected) source of evidence in the development of connectionist models of the 12 mental lexicon.
