Abstract

Input flooding is a focus-on-form intervention in which the input that is provided to learners is seeded with multiple examples of a target structure. The expectation is that ample exposure to the same target form in the input will make it more salient, and in doing so, will draw learners' attention to the linguistic form. This entry describes the rationale, research considerations, and theoretical framework supporting the use of input flood, and then discusses how to implement it in second language (L2) classes.
