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

69 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an easy-to-read, accessible style, it provides students with information about the scope of the field, but also provides background information on related areas such as first language acquisition. The book introduces students to current issues of data collection and data analysis, as well as provides an historical overview of the field, thus giving students context and perspective about how today's issues arise from earlier approaches. Each chapter offers discussion questions and/or problems so that students can put their knowledge to use in a way that is relevant to what they have learned, but that also challenges them to go beyond what is in the chapter and to relate information across chapters. The book covers a range of areas of second language research including sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, and linguistic perspectives. It also includes a chapter on the lexicon and on instructed second language learning. The concluding chapter pulls the information in the previous chapters together into a coherent framework that challenges students to think about the field of second language acquisition as a whole

Linguistic perspectives on second language acquisition by Susan M Gass( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores how a second language is acquired and what learners must do in order to achieve proficiency. The paperback edition is a collection of original essays that approaches second language acquisition from a linguistic rather than a sociological, psychological, or purely pedagogical perspective. A wide range of viewpoints and approaches is represented. The essays in this book provide an incisive analysis of how a second language is acquired and what the second language learner must do mentally to achieve proficiency in another language. The chapters are arranged topically from those covering the broad area of theories of acquisition to those focusing specifically on syntax, semantics, pragmatics, lexicon, and phonology in another language

Second language classroom research : issues and opportunities by Jacquelyn Schachter( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an attempt to fill the gap left by the many published studies on classroom second language research, this book explores a variety of human, social, and political issues involved in the carrying out of such studies. Many journals are chock-full of the results of classroom research, with evidence to support one claim or another about the efficacy of one teaching method or another. Many textbooks are replete with statistical procedures to be used, and with experimental designs to fit varying situations. Too often overlooked in these treatments are the human, social, and political issues involv
Speech acts across cultures : challenges to communication in a second language by Susan M Gass( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language acquisition is a human endeavor par excellence. As children, all human beings learn to understand and speak at least one language: their mother tongue. It is a process that seems to take place without any obvious effort. Most people, however, know more than one language. Children may have become bilingual in early childhood; adults may have become more or less fluent in a second language, either by using it in everyday communication or by formal instruction in the classroom. The study of child language acquisition explores how the human mind construes the preliminary linguistic system

Pedagogical norms for second and foreign language learning and teaching : studies in honour of Albert Valdman( Book )

18 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of Pedagogical Norm is grounded in both sociolinguistic and psycholinguistic principles.

The papers collectively illustrate how the concept of pedagogical norm applies to all components of language, including phonology, morphology, syntax, and discourse.
