Synopsis:
Whether we grow up with one, two, or several languages during our early years of life, many of us will learn a second, foreign, or heritage language in later years. The field of Second language acquisition (SLA, for short) investigates the human capacity to learn additional languages in late childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, after the first language --in the case of monolinguals-- or languages --in the case of bilinguals-- have already been acquired. Understanding Second Language Acquisition offers a wide-encompassing survey of this burgeoning field, its accumulated findings and proposed theories, its developed research paradigms, and its pending questions for the future. The book zooms in and out of universal, individual, and social forces, in each case evaluating the research findings that have been generated across diverse naturalistic and formal contexts for second language acquisition. It assumes no background in SLA and provides helpful chapter-by-chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading.
Ideal as a textbook for students of applied linguistics, foreign language education, TESOL, and education, it is also recommended for students of linguistics, developmental psycholinguistics, psychology, and cognitive science.

Book Description: Taylor & Francis Ltd. Dez 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 233x156x25 mm. Neuware - Second Language Acquisition (SLA) is a theoretical and experimental field of study which looks at the phenomenon of the acquisition of second languages. Understanding Second Language Acquisition provides an approachable but authoritative introduction to this area of linguistics. The basics are carefully explained and there are pointers for further study. In this book, the author concentrates on the essential notions involved rather than arguing for a particular theoretical position. The book has broad appeal as it offers a balanced treatment of the linguistic, social, psychological and educational dimensions of SLA research. It will be illustrated with examples of English and other languages. This is the ideal book for both new students of Applied Linguistics, or anyone in a related discipline looking for a first introduction to second language learning. 304 pp. Englisch.
