Second language learning theories by Rosamond Mitchell( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Second Language Learning Theories is an introduction to the field of second language learning for students without a substantial background in linguistics. Drawing on the expertise of both a specialist in the teaching of second languages and a linguist specialising in second language acquisition, this textbook provides an up-to-date introductory survey of the most active and significant perspectives on the subject." "In this new edition, the authors have revised and updated the text throughout to reflect the substantial developments that have taken place in the field in recent years. New studies have been incorporated as examples, and theoretical advances are presented and explained. The evaluation sections in each chapter have been expanded and generally the book is rebalanced in favour of newer material."--Jacket

Oral French Interlanguage Corpora: Tools for Data Management and Analysis. Occasional Paper by Emma Marsden( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper describes several methodological decisions made during a study of linguistic development of French in British classroom learners, highlighting the significance of choosing suitable tools for collecting, transcribing, and analyzing oral interlanguage data and noting the usefulness for interlanguage research of the childes (Child Language Data Exchange System) procedures, which consists of three integrated components: the Talkbank database, chat (Codes for Human Analysis of Transcripts), and clan (Computerized Language Analysis). This paper is based on the Linguistic Development in Classroom Learners of French research project, which documents linguistic progression among classroom learners of French in grades 9-11, analyzes the development of morphosyntactic structures in spoken learner French, and evaluates the creative construction process and its interaction with formulaic languages among instructed learners. The paper notes general problems with the transcription and coding of French interlanguage but suggests that experiences to date with using childes is encouraging. Three appendixes include elicitation tasks, chat symbols, and examples of preliminary transcription. (Contains 14 references.) (Sm)
Complexity, Accuracy and Fluency: The Role Played by Formulaic Sequencesin Early Interlanguage Development by Florence Myles( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this chapter is to investigate how complexity, accuracy and fluency interact in early l2 development, when learners' linguistic means are underdeveloped. Learners then resort to rote-learned formulaic sequences to complement their current grammar when it is unable to meet their communicative needs. The interplay between their nascent grammar and these formulaic sequences provides an interesting window onto how learners resolve tensions between complexity, accuracy, fluency, and communicative needs. Formulaic sequences are very common in early l2 productions and enable learners to communicate in spite of limited linguistic means so that they appear to be more advanced in the l2 than they actually are, in terms of complexity, accuracy and fluency. In spite of their prevalence in early productions, however, the role that these formulaic sequences play in l2 development remains unclear. Are they used as communicative crutches until learners' grammatical competence enables them to generate these forms productively or do they contribute more directly to learners' linguistic development? This chapter reports on an empirical study tracing and analysing the development of such sequences over time in the early l2 productions of instructed learners of French. It is argued that these sequences gradually become unpacked during the acquisition process, and are used as models by learners in order to assist them in the construction of a productive l2 grammar. The tension between, on the one hand, complex, accurate and fluent formulaic sequences, but whose internal structure has not yet been analysed into its constituents in order to use them productively elsewhere, and on the other hand, an underdeveloped linguistic system which does not allow communicative needs to be met, seems to be driving the acquisition process forward in these learners. The linguistic status of these sequences seems to be that of single multimorphemic lexical units which have been assigned a semantic representation but are underspecified syntactically. Their intrinsic morphosyntactic complexity, therefore, and the fact that they can be accessed as single units rather than effortfully constructed from scratch in real time communication, gives the misleading impression of complex, accurate and fluent productions at a stage when learners' productive grammars are in fact very simple, approximate and non-fluent. (Contains 4 tables and 10 footnotes.) [For complete volume, see ed539539.]
