Psychotypology in L3 Acquisition: A survey of (dis)similarity perceptions in non-adult learners

Abstract [en]

In this contribution, we review the field of studies on psychotypology in L2 and L3 learning. We propose different definitions of the construct and discuss theories about learners’ perceptions of similarity that have been suggested in L2 and L3 research, from Kellerman’s (1983) notion to recent studies (e.g. García Mayo & Rothman 2012). Psychotypology involves similarity, and more importantly, perceived similarity. Intuitively, this is an attracting way of trying to explain CLI between similar languages, but it is not clear from the literature to what extent learners are aware of themselves perceiving similarity and of the possibility to draw on this process in additional language learning. Crucially, in the process of learning a new language, learners may be aided by their multilingual metalinguistic knowledge (cf. e.g. Jessner, 2008), but their conscious or unconscious knowledge of the similarity between two languages can also, in particular cases, mislead the learner (Bardel & Falk 2012, García Mayo & Rothman 2012).
