The focus of this book is on foreign and second language pedagogy research. The 21 articles have been written as a tribute to the memory of Claus Faerch by colleagues and friends in his home country, Denmark, in the rest of Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden) and Finland, in Great Britain, Holland and the Federal Republic of Germany, in Canada, Israel, and the USA. Professionally these scholars span a range of interests: applied linguistics, second language acquisition, foreign language pedagogy, psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics. Some are more concerned with theory, its utility and validity, others with teacher training and more practical aspects of language learning. Most strive to integrate theory with the promotion of good language learning. Some are concerned with the teaching and learning of their mother tongue, whether as the dominant or as an immigrant language, while others teach foreign languages. The book has five sections, each of them concerned with theory and empirical studies. There are sets of articles on applied linguistics in a historical perspective, in the short and longer term; on learner language; on learner strategies and processes; on classroom research; and on the learning of pragmatic and social competence.
