Abstract:
Research has shown that being exposed to a High variability of words in a new language, over less words more often (High repetition), leads to increased detection of that language's rules and that words with multiple category markings are learned better. It has not been observed how sleep would affect this type of learning, even though it has been seen as important in other parts of language learning. The current study looks at how all of these factors interact. The findings showed effects of Marking and differences between groups but sleep was not seen as a significant variable. A follow up study, currently being run, is described.
