    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 173.00

    The notion of phonetic segment, phone and phoneme are closely related and all are intuitively appealing. At least one of them seems like the right description for speech. But all those who report these intuitions happen to be people who learned to write using a phonetic alphabet in early childhood. Speech is difficult to attend to because of its rapidity,... more...

    Second language acquisition has to integrate the totality of the SLA process, which includes both the learning of the core syntax of a language and the learning of the lexical items that have to be incorporated into that syntax.

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 165.00

    The last decade has seen a growing body of research investigating various aspects of L2 learners? performance of tasks. This book focuses on one task implementation variable: planning.
