  • Language Development across Childhood and Adolescenceby Ruth A. Berman

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    This volume brings together work by scholars with backgrounds in linguistics, psycholinguistics, developmental psychology, education, and language pathology. As such, the book adds psycholinguistic and crosslinguistic perspectives to the clinical and classroom approaches that have dominated the study of “later language development”. Incorporating insights... more...

  • Language Experience in Second Language Speech Learningby Ocke-Schwen Bohn; Murray J. Munro

    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...

  • Learning a Second Language through Interactionby Rod Ellis

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 57.00

    This book examines different theoretical perspectives on the role that interaction plays in second language acquisition. The principal perspectives are those afforded by the Interaction Hypothesis, Socio-Cultural Theory and the Levels of Processing model. Interaction is, therefore, defined broadly; it is seen as involving both intermental and intramental... more...

  • The Lexicon–Syntax Interface in Second Language Acquisitionby Roeland van Hout; Aafke Hulk; Folkert Kuiken; Richard J. Towell

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 149.00

    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. But these two domains involve different kinds of learning. Syntax is learnt through a process of implementing a particular... more...

  • Memory, Psychology and Second Language Learningby Mick Randall

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 54.00

    This book explores the contributions that cognitive linguistics and psychology, including neuropsychology, have made to the understanding of the way that second languages are processed and learnt. It examines areas of phonology, word recognition and semantics, examining ‘bottom-up’ decoding processes as compared with ‘top-down’ processes as they affect... more...

  • Paths of Development in L1 and L2 acquisitionby Sharon Unsworth; Teresa Parodi; Antonella Sorace; Martha Young-Scholten

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2006; US$ 165.00

    The main focus of generative language development research in recent decades has been the logical problem of language acquisition - how learners go beyond the input to acquire complex linguistic knowledge. This collection deals with the complementary issue of the developmental problem of language acquisition: How do learners move from one developmental... more...

  • Phonology and Second Language Acquisitionby Jette G. Hansen Edwards; Mary L. Zampini

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 54.00

    This volume is a collection of 13 chapters, each devoted to a particular issue that is crucial to our understanding of the way learners acquire, learn, and use an L2 sound system. In addition, it spans both theory and application in L2 phonology. The book is divided into three parts, with each section unified by broad thematic content: Part I, “Theoretical... more...

  • Planning and Task Performance in a Second Languageby Rod Ellis

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 54.00

    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. It considers theories of how opportunities to plan a task affect performance and tests claims derived from these theories in a series of empirical studies. The book... more...

  • Narrative Development in a Multilingual Contextby Ludo Verhoeven; Sven Strömqvist

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 188.00

    In this volume, the results of a number of empirical studies of the development of narrative construction within a multilingual context are presented and discussed. It is explored what operating principles underlie the process of narrative production in L1 and L2. Developmental relations between form and function will be studied across a broad range... more...

  • Hispanic Child Languagesby John Grinstead

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 149.00

    This chapter investigates whether a specific grammatical marker can be used to identify specific language impairment (SLI) in monolingual Spanish-speaking (SS) children that is consistent with a linguistic knowledge deficit account of SLI. A number of grammatical markers that have been identified as vulnerable to error in Spanish-English bilingual... more...
