In this study, attempts are made to address the following research questions :
1) What communication strategies (CS) are used for solving grammatical problems?
2) How can lexical and grammatical problems be solved beyond the lexical level?
3) What patters of paraphrase can be used as a CS?
4) How can and should CS be taught?
5) What roles can CS play in second language acquisition?
6) What is the state of the art in CS research and what issues should be solved by future research?
The results of the study give the following answers to each of the questions :
1) CS for solving grammatical questions can be classified by means of the distinctive features [±achieve], [±replace] and [±restructure].
2) Lexical and grammatical problems can be solved beyond the lexical level by syntactic manipulation (e.g. grammatical subject change) and pragmatic manipulation (e.g. indirect speech act).
3) Paraphrase can be classified by means of the
4) CS training should be systematic, integrated, and continuous as an essential activity in the L2 classroom.
5) CS can play varying roles in second language acquisition depending on the conditions they can satisfy in terms of comprehensible input, comprehensible output, input frequency, noticing, and noticing the gap.
6) The issues to be resolved through future research include CS for solving non-lexical problems, developmental features of CS, roles of CS use in second language acquisition, CS use in various types of interaction, research methodology, factors in CS choice, and content/method of teaching CS.
