Implicit learning involves attention to the stimulus but does not involve other conscious operations. It is strongly affected by repetition. Explicit learning is more conscious. The learner makes and tests hypotheses in a search for structure (Ellis, 1994: 214). Explicit learning can involve a search for rules, or applying given rules. It is strongly affected by the quality of the mental processing. What Ellis calls the mediational aspect is the mapping or linking of knowledge of the word form to knowledge of the meaning of the word.

Some affixes and stems change their form when they are joined together, for example, in- + legal = illegal. We will look at this in more detail in Chapter 8.
