About the Author:

Bill VanPatten is Professor of Spanish and Director of Romance Language Instruction at Michigan State University, USA.

Review:

This is a well-crafted primer for the newcomer to the field of second language research. The discussion of key issues is clear and straightforward, and illustrated effectively with simple linguistic examples. The definitions of the key terms are equally good. The text provides an excellent point of entry to the more technical research reported in the specialist journals.
(Professor Roger Hawkins, Department of Language & Linguistics, University of Essex, UK)

Key Terms in Second Language Acquisition is the text we've been waiting for to introduce students to the field of SLA. I used the manuscript in my introduction to SLA graduate seminar and found this to be the ideal book to help students appreciate and critique the major issues and questions that drive this burgeoning discipline. Students praised this text for being easy to read and digest and appreciated the handy key terms and up-to-date references. This book will quickly become a key text in all introductory SLA courses.
(Wynne Wong, Associate Professor of French and Second Language Acquisition at The Ohio State University, USA)

VanPatten (Texas Tech Univ.) and Benati (Univ. of Greenwich, UK) have written a book that will serve as a handy reference tool for students interested in the growing discipline of second language acquisition. [...] Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. (CHOICE, September 2010)

'The text presents definitions and reader-friendly summaries of key theories and thinkers in a complex field.' (Times Higher Education Supplement)

'The succinct descriptions of the key terms and the overall slim and compact size of the book undoubtedly make this a handy reference source for students of SLA, helped by the lucid and accessible style in which it is written, and the simple linguistic examples used to illustrate the discussion.' (Journal Of Multilingual & Multicultural Development)
