In SLA, the stimuli would be linguistic items in the INPUT. Three constructs of attention are generally discussed in the literature: ‘attention as capacity’, ‘attention as selection’, and ‘attention as effort’. Attention as capacity refers to learners’ ability to allocate attention to the Attention-Processing Model 27 processing of the information they receive. It is well established that attention involves a limited capacity; that is, people are exposed to a large number of stimuli and the brain cannot process all of them at the same time (see WORKING MEMORY).

The aspect hypothesis is a rich hypothesis drawing upon many forms of linguistics. It is important to note that very early forms of temporal expressions appear without any overt linguistic marking. Four ways are suggested by which learners can express temporality: (a) build on conversational partner’s discourse, (b) infer from context, (c) contrast events, and (d) follow chronological order in narration. These are essentially pragmatic means for accomplishing what cannot be accomplished linguistically.
