9781847693754: The Acquisition of L2 Phonology (Second Language Acquisition)

The Acquisition of L2 Phonology is a wide-ranging new collection which focuses on various aspects of the acquisition of an L2 phonological system. The authors are researchers and practitioners from five different countries. The volume has been divided into three major sections. Phonetic Analysis presents five studies of language learners in both naturalistic and formal-educational settings, which illustrate aspects of L2 production and perception. In Phonological Analysis a more abstract and comparative perspective is taken, in order to use recent theories modeling the route of L1/L2 pronunciation and reading ability development to account for observable tendencies in learner behavior. Pedagogical Perspectives consists of four contributions of high practical value, which look at the mastery of native-like or highly intelligible pronunciation as an important component of L2 education.

About the Author:

Janusz Arabski and Adam Wojtaszek both work at the University of Silesia, Poland. Their research interests include psycholinguistics, language acquisition and linguistic pragmatics. They are the editors of Neurolinguistic and Psycholinguistic Perspectives on SLA and The Acquisition of L2 Phonology, both recently published by Multilingual Matters. The editors and the contributing authors are active members of many scientific committees and organizations devoted to the investigation of language acquisition processes, and they regularly participate in many conferences and publish extensively. The author list comprises experienced scholars as well as young and promising researchers.Adam Wojtaszek is Associate Professor and the Deputy Director at the Institute of English, University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland. His major field of interest is linguistic pragmatics, psycholinguistics and language of persuasion. He has published two books on advertising language, Deciphering Radio Commercials – A Pragmatic Perspective (2002) and Theoretical Frameworks in the Study of Press Advertisements – Polish, British and Chinese Perspective (2011), as well as a number of articles on the topic. Within the area of psycholinguistics and second language acquisition studies, he has co-edited a number of volumes reporting on recent studies and developments, such as Neurolinguistic and Psycholinguistic Perspectives on SLA (2010), The Acquisition of L2 Phonology (2011a), Individual Learner Differences in SLA (2011b), Aspects of Culture in Second Language Acquisition and Foreign Language Learning (2011c), and recently Studying Second Language Acquisition from a Qualitative Perspective (2014). He is also the author of a chapter on morphosyntactic development in the volume edited by Danuta Gabryś-Barker, Readings in Second Language Acquisition (2012). He is also one of the organizers of the annual international SLA conference held in Szczyrk, Poland, a major event of international recognition, initiated in the mid 1980's by Janusz Arabski.

Review:

Second language phonetics and phonology continue to attract researchers and teachers, theoreticians and practitioners, with the former marvelling at the degree of variability in the L2 sound systems and the latter trying to find most effective ways of limiting this variability in their learners. As the field continues to grow, we need as much cooperation between the two approaches as possible. This volume offers a perfect balance between theory and practice, presenting original phonetics/phonology and classroom research. The applied approach that links all the contributions to the volume puts the sound system in the right perspective as an integral element of L2 proficiency. The book will be of interest to anyone involved in researching and/or teaching English to speakers of other languages.

(Ewa Waniek-Klimczak, University of Łódz, Poland)


This unique collection showcases the exciting work on acquisition that's been coming out of Poland for decades. What sets Arabski & Wojtaszek's edited volume apart from others on L2 phonology is its wide appeal. There's something for everyone, from phonetic and phonological analyses of interlanguage data, to reading and phonological awareness, to paralinguistic cues in the classroom.

(Martha Young-Scholten, Newcastle University, UK)
