Of 233 NNS uses of go in the VL construction, we could find 17 that seemed to result from priming from the NS interview interaction. Of 152 NNS uses of put in VOL, 8 appeared to be directly primed in this way. Of the 22 NNS uses of give in VOO, one appeared to be primed in this way. Interactional priming thus appears to account for some of the NNS use observed here, but by no means the majority. The first-learned verbs in each VAC are prototypical of that construction’s functional interpretation.

The EALC Model, taking evidence from a large body of psycholinguistic research into account, proposes an on-line parallel processing system that operates in a uniform manner because it is retrieving and selecting from a uniform set of constructions. For the L2 learner who does not yet possess the necessary constructions, the DIR Model allows for smaller lexical constructions that are already known to trigger conceptual representations, which can then yield interpretations just as grammatical constructions do.
