Interlanguage : forty years later by Zhaohong Han( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This chapter pulls together 40 years of interlanguage study in terms of three interlinked themes: (1) historic roots, emphasizing ongoing questions/issues that needed interlanguage to be asked; (2) interlanguage as a system in its own right, centering on evidence for the systematic nature of interlanguage; (3) a suggested future centering on creation of a deep interlanguage semantics guided by not only learning from, but contributing to, an exponentially-changing computational world. The chapter concludes with a "peroration" addressed to current students and younger colleagues stressing develo

Research methodology in second-language acquisition by Elaine Tarone( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses salient theoretical issues concerning the validity of research methods in second-language acquisition, and provides critical analysis of contextualized versus sentence-level production approaches. The contributors present their views of competence versus performance, the nature of language acquisition data, research design, the relevance of contextualized data collection and interpretation, and the desirability of a particularistic nomothetic theoretical paradigm versus more comprehensive consideration of multiple realities and complex influencing factors. This book presents varying and antithetical approaches to the issues, bringing together the thinking and approaches of leading researchers in language acquisition, language education, and sociolinguistics in an engaging debate of great currency in the field
Variation in interlanguage by Elaine Tarone( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the acquisition of a second or other language speech and writing are influenced by the native and the "target" language and by the learner's conscious attempts to apply grammatical rules. Elaine Tarone's account offers both theoretical and practical guidance in this crucial area
English for academic and technical purposes : studies in honor of Louis Trimble by Larry Selinker( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this "Festschrift" are theoretical and descriptive in nature as well as practical. The first section of the book contains theoretical papers dealing with the following topics: criteria for course design, logical argumentation, a taxonomic approach to scientific vocabulary, function of a type of particle in a chemistry textbook, verb forms and functions in some medical texts, anaphoric functions of some demonstrative noun phrases in scientific and technological English, tense usage, and a comparative analysis of English and Romanian in scientific and technical discourse. 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)
Literacy and second language oracy by Elaine Tarone( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learners who cannot decode alphabetic script have been left out of the SLA research enterprise, at considerable cost to our understanding of the human capacity for language learning. This book offers research evidence documenting the significant impact of low literacy skill on adolescents' processing of oral L2 input and acquisition. Together with a large body of closely related research in cognitive psychology, the findings lead to a startling conclusion: cognitive skills that havebeen assumed to be universal human traits appear instead to be a product

Aspects of intonation in vernacular white and black English speech by Elaine Tarone( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1979 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intonation patterns of Black English were studied and compared with those occurring in White English and formal Black English. It was found that: (1) the Black English corpus was characterized by a wider pitch range, extending into higher pitch levels than either the White vernacular or the formal Black English of the adult information; (2) a falsetto register was used in Black English more often than either White English or formal Black English; and (3) more rising and level final contours were used in Black English, while White English and formal Black English used more falling final contours. This study provides evidence, never previously reported, of the use of intonation alone in Black English to serve a grammatical function of marking the dependent clause of a conditional sentence, without concomitant use of the lexical item "if". It is concluded that intonation cannot be studied apart from the social situation. The majority of the intonational characteristics found in the Black English corpus can be traced directly to systematic differences between black street culture and white "mainstream" culture, rather than to any systematic differences in phonology per se, and may be accounted for as resulting from different "social rules" for speech with black street culture.

A selected annotated bibliography on social dialects, for teachers of speech and English by Elaine Tarone( Book )

3 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography is designed to be used by teachers who need some background in the nature of "social dialects," who wish to keep abreast of the results of recent research in sociolinguistics, and who are looking for materials for use in the classroom. The emphasis of this bibliography is on Black English (be) as compared with "Standard American" English (se), but is not wholly restricted to that subject. In choosing items for inclusion, priority was given to those dealing most directly with the teaching of high school and college students, basic sociolinguistic research, analyses of be and se systems, and other data which might be useful to the secondary or college-level teacher in compiling teaching materials. Priority is also given to more recent work, particularly in terms of reporting of recent research in the area. Book reviews have not been included. (Author/AMM)

Some influences on interlanguage phonology by Elaine Tarone( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a preliminary study which focuses on the syllable structure of interlanguage and begins to identify some of the processes which shape that interlanguage. Adults learning English as a second language in a formal classroom situation were recorded as they described a series of pictures in English. Two subjects were native speakers of Cantonese, two were native speakers of Portuguese and two were native speakers of Korean. Their speech was transcribed and analyzed for syllable structure. The data support the following findings: (1) the syllable structure of the interlanguages examined was markedly different from that of the target language; (2) in the syllable structure of the interlanguages examined, both epenthesis and consonant deletion seemed to be used as strategies for syllable simplification, with the first-language background of the learner seeming to be related to a preference for one strategy over the other; (3) the dominant process influencing the syllable structure of the interlanguage phonologies appeared to be language transfer; (4) a preference for the open (consonant-vowel) syllable seemed to operate as a process independent of language transfer in influencing the syllable structure of the interlanguage phonologies; and (5) glottal stop insertion appeared only between words, possibly as a result of an attempt to produce lexical items as separate units in the speech stream.

A closer look at some interlanguage terminology : a framework for communication strategies by Elaine Tarone( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper attempts to provide a framework within which the terminology used to talk about the learner's interlanguage may be defined so as to represent categories of types of interlanguage phenomena which are often discussed by teachers and researchers interested in second language acquisition. Several distinct types of "communication strategies" which are for the most part observable in the various domains of language (phonological, morphological, syntactic, and lexical) are discussed and illustrated.

A Discussion of the Dulay and Burt Studies. Working Papers onBilingualism, No. 4 by Elaine Tarone( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Participants in a seminar series in second language acquisition held at Harvard University discussed three papers by Dulay and Burt ("Goofing: An Indicator of Children's Second Language Learning Strategies, ""Should We Teach Children Syntax?", "Natural Sequences in Child Second Language Acquisition"), and developed several questions and issues regarding specific aspects of those papers. Among the issues raised are: (1) universal language processing strategies; (2) statistical discrepancies between the second and third studies; (3) interference in second language acquisition; (4) theoretical model of morpheme acquisition order; (5) morpheme scoring; (6) statistics and data analysis. Each question posed by the group is followed by a response from Dulay and Burt. (Db)

Assessment Measures for Specific Contexts of Language Use by Micheline Chalhoub-Deville( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A discussion of second language testing focuses on the need for collaboration among researchers in second language learning, teaching, and testing concerning development of context-appropriate language tests. It is argued that the nature of the proficiency construct in language is not constant, but that different linguistic, functional, and creative proficiency components are at work in different instructional and social contexts. Inadequacies of traditional and commercial tests for assessing contextualized language skills or determining instructional needs that are found frequently by teacher-researchers are examined. It is proposed that in both teaching and research, the validity of test score interpretation and use will be enhanced by use of tests constructed specifically for the instructional context in question, rather than generic, externally-produced proficiency measures. Broad criteria for construction of such measures are offered. Contains 100 references. (Mse)
