Abstract
The studies presented in this paper were conducted to find answers to
the following questions: 1. Does the time constraint factor influence the
speed of processing, the accuracy of judgment, and/or their relationship of
second-language learners in a grammaticality judgment task? 2. Does the
level of proficiency in a second language influence the speed of processing,
the accuracy of judgment and/or their relationship? 3. Does the time constraint
factor influence the speed of processing, the accuracy of judgment,
and/or their relationship of native speakers? 4. What can be concluded
about the use of reaction time measurements in second-language
acquisition experiments? The results from the present studies indicate the
following: 1. For non-native speakers, the presence or absence of the time
constraint factor in a grammaticality judgment test produces significant effects
on the speed of processing but not on the accuracy of judgment or on
the relationship between the two variables. 2. Level of proficiency in the
second language produces significant effects on the accuracy of judgment
but not on the speed of processing or on the relationship between the two
variables. 3. For native speakers, the presence or absence of the time constraint
factor did not produce any significant effect on either the speed of
processing, the accuracy of judgment or their relationship. 4. Thus it is
concluded that the reaction-time measurement is a good indicator of the
level of linguistic competence for non-native speakers in second-language
acquisition experiments.
