Second language acquisition : an introductory course by Susan M Gass( Book )

53 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a thorough revision of the text first published in 1994. The authors retain the multidisciplinary approach that presents research from linguistics, sociology, psychology, and education, in a format designed for use in an introductory course for undergraduate or graduate students. The research is updated throughout and there are new sections and chapters in this second edition as well. New chapters cover child language acquisition (first and second), Universal Grammar, and instructed language learning; new sections address issues, such as what data analysis doesn't show, replication of research findings, interlanguage transfer (multilingual acquisition and transfer), the aspect hypothesis, general nativism, connectionist approaches, and implicit/explicit knowledge. Major updates include nonlanguage influences and the lexicon. --From publisher's description

Language Transfer in Language Learning by Susan M Gass( )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of native language influence in Second Language Acquisition has undergone significant changes over the past few decades. This book, which includes 12 chapters by distinguished researchers in the field of second language acquisition, traces the conceptual history of language transfer from its early role within a Contrastive Analysis framework to its current position within Universal Grammar. The introduction presents a continuum of thought starting from the late 70s, a time in which major rethinking in the field regarding the concept of language transfer was beginning to take place, and continuing through the present day in which language transfer is integrated within current concepts and theoretical models. The afterword unites the issues discussed and allows the reader to place these issues in the context of future research. For the present book, the 1983 edition has been thoroughly revised, and some papers have been replaced and added

The papers in this "Festschrift" are theoretical and descriptive in nature as well as practical.

The second section deals with designing modular materials, developing a reading curriculum, subjects and objects in English for special purposes (esp) materials, thoughts from the classroom on esp materials, interpretation of "information transfer," the case study as needs assessment in esp, and processing learning texts. The third section is a bibliography of Louis Trimble's works. (Amh)

English language development in context: The peer social networks and interactions of Spanish-speaking adolescent immigrant students by Avary Carhill-Poza( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the final paper, qualitative analysis triangulated these patterns of linguistic peer support through direct observation of language use and documented the complex interplay between school context factors and student agency in developing peers as a resource for learning academic English. Qualitative findings show that peer social networks were mediated by school policy and common teaching practices which segregated Spanish-speaking immigrant students from mainstream students and reduced English learners' opportunities to interact meaningfully around academic content

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Significant within-group differences for Korean and Chinese learners suggest evidence of transfer. Furthermore, The lack of significance between Chinese/Korean and the English native control group, in terms of the comitative with, is not expected from Klein's (1993, 1995, 2001) no-transfer view, and is at least suggestive of L1 transfer, allowing some theoretical leeway for other contributing factors. These data are discussed referent to the literature and issues of transfer and fossilization

In addition, familiarity led to considerably higher accuracy in verb tense and lexical choice, though there were no significant correlations among familiarity, interest level, and frequency of conversing on a given topic. Additionally, the transcripts obtained from a subset of eight participants were analyzed qualitatively to examine possible L1 transfer in L2 learners' IL variation in English. The findings revealed possible evidence of L1 transfer on participants' IL production in English, though extent of transfer was not sensitive to familiarity of discourse domain
