The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of using semantic mapping technique in comparison to traditional technique in vocabulary learning and to find out whether there is a relationship between students’ beliefs about vocabulary learning strategies (vlss) and what strategies they prefer to use 32 students at the pre- intermediate level of english from selcuk university, at the. The semantic differential, administered both before and after the introduction of rnwih information, presumably would illustrate such a change of meaning re suiting from the new information by a movement in semantle space (a shift of. Semantic transfer hypothesis according to the semantic transfer hypothesis, the semantic content residing in l2 word is transferred from their l1 translations a clear understanding of the process is required for any attempt to develop a theory of vocabulary acquisition. It is concluded that contextually based, multi-level research methods that view the whorfian hypothesis and its relationship to semantic transfer as problems of discourse are most appropriate, and that discourse-based, naturalistic research would also be of value.
