Canadian and Brazilian research on L2 production and the Output Hypothesis: seeking for a psycholinguistic rationale for the use of translation in L2 learning.

Maria da Glória Guará-Tavares, Antonia de Jesus Sales

Resumo


The aim of this paper is to pursuit a psycholinguistic rationale for the use of pedagogical translation in L2 learning. First, it reviews the panorama of translation in L2 teaching/learning. Second, it presents the Output Hypothesis (Swain, 1985, 1995) and reviews empirical studies on output carried out in Canada and in Brazil. Next, it presents the task based teaching as an approach that is compatible with the use of translation in L2 learning. Finally, taking the perspective that translation is language production, it is argued that translating tasks (written or spoken) will trigger cognitive processes that, according to the Output Hypothesis, are beneficial to L2 learning. We claim that the beginning of the search of a psycholinguistic rationale for the use of translation has its crucial point in the mental processes that are triggered.
