Regression and Threshold Hypotheses in English Language Attrition Through Computer Aided Education: A Computer Technology Assisted Behavioral Study
Yu Zhonggen

Abstract:
Regression and threshold hypotheses are widely-held theories in the field of language attrition despite the fact that few empirical studies have been carried out to validate them. This study, aiming to validate both hypotheses, examined the reaction time and error percentage of three groups of participants who were middle school students, workers and English teachers with the aid of computer via an empirical study. The results showed that the threshold hypothesis was nearly sound. In contrast, the regression hypothesis was hardly convincible. The possible reasons for the results were also explored and further suggestions regarding language attrition were put forward as well.
