- In many studies on the second language acquisition, output effect is considered as greater than input effect. Many researchers suggested that output allows learners to become focused on grammatical forms rather than meaning. In this paper, we investigate the output effect by measuring grammaticality judgment and response time to grammatical forms. This paper suggests that there is no big difference between impacts of input group and output group in both results of grammaticality judgment and response time. However, a trend that output is more efficient than input is detected indirectly. In addition, it is proved indirectly that response time only to already-acquired forms decreases.
