Abstract :This paper intends to summarize critical issues discussed in the literature about incidental vocabulary learning through listening input, with a focus on the form of target items, their meaning, and the characteristics of aural input. As Vidal (2003) points out, research in this area is scarce on second/foreign language learning. This led us to summarize the findings in the areas of reading stories aloud to L1 children and of the effects of phonological short-term memory on vocabulary acquisition. Research findings show that L2 learners tend to have greater difficulty in acquiring bottom-up skills of processing and retaining phonological forms of target vocabulary. Unlike in the L1, abilities such as distinguishing language-specific phonological forms seem to take more time to be established, i.e., to become "automatic." Still, L2 learners often have the advantage of simply needing to learn vocabulary while already possessing knowledge from their L1 of the concepts behind the words, which is not the case for L1 learners. The Abovementioned learner characteristics should be taken into consideration when carrying out "listening activities" with an expectation of learners' incidental vocabulary acquisition. Features which will possibly enhance such learning in the L2 are also suggested in this paper.
