An experimental approach to the Conrad phenomenon

This study adopts an experimental approach to the Conrad Phenomenon,
i.e. the phenomenon that second language (L2) learners can perform
remarkably better in some aspects of their L2 while performing poorly at
others. L2 performance in syntax, phonetics and phonology, and the lexicon
in four L2 learner groups differing in L2 experience and native language
background was examined and correlations between L2 performance in
the three domains revealed a general trend of positive relations between
domains, thus suggesting that the Conrad Phenomenon is uncommon. The
strongest between-domain relation was observed between the lexicon and
phonetics and phonology, thus supporting the notion of lexical facilitation
in L2 speech acquisition.
