    The learner is exposed to second language through discourses. Due to their relative impenetrableness, the learner must choose selection fragments in order to initiate some sort of interpretation, or even participation, as limited as it may be, in a communication activity. This selection unfolds as a focus on the most salient fragments of the speech, which hence become inputs. The definition of saliency is a highly complex process based on objective and subjective criteria, which we are trying to detail in our article. To what extent do these inputs coincide with the data investigators use in order to understand the learning process? A discussion on this matter is used as the framework for this study on saliency.
