ABSTRACT
This paper tries to provide both theoretical and pedagogical evidence on the organizational pattern of L2 mental lexicon for Chinese ESL learners and teachers. The evidence results from a carefully designed empirical research where the subjects are ESL students with different language proficiencies from software school of DUT. Results show that the organizational pattern of Chinese ESL learners’ mental lexicon is a mix of semantic and non-semantic network, and it is rather dynamic. Efforts of reconstructing the lexicon network are necessary.
