Abstract


This study was carried out to investigate the possible relationship between linguistic intelligence and recalling lexical items in second language acquisition (SLA). In this regard, 40 participants (22 females and 18 males) took part in the current study. To measure the participants' linguistic intelligence scores, the researcher used McKenzie’s (1999) questionnaire. A cued-recall vocabulary test was also designed to measure the participants' recalling of lexical items in L2. Regression analyses demonstrated that the participants' linguistic intelligence did have a significant correlation with the participants’ recalling of lexical items in L2.
