Besides these two chapters, other empirical chapters have also contributed to provide insights into the relationship between WM and various aspects of SLA and they are further discussed below. The second generalisation that can be derived from Table 1 is related to EWM. As postulated in the P/E model, EWM plays an important role in many post-interpretive processing and real-time performance-related aspects of L2 comprehension, L2 interaction and production. It is clear from the table (in particular, as shown in the ‘WM components and measures’ column) that most empirical studies in the current volume have focused on EWM rather than PSTM.

This is assumed to be a multidimensional storage system, capable of combining information from the visuospatial and verbal subsystems and linking it with further information from perception and LTM. It was assumed to hold a limited number of episodes (cf. Cowan, 2005), with each episode binding together information from these various sources into unified chunks. Finally, the buffer was assumed to be accessible to conscious awareness, and indeed to be the basis of conscious awareness which, like Baars (2002), I proposed serves the specific function of binding together information into consciously experienced arrays or episodes.
