About this item

This volume details nine key questions, nine theories and frameworks, and many terms in second language acquisition. The questions address what the initial state is, whether second language learners can become native-like, whether there is a critical period, what development looks like, the roles of explicit and implicit learning and input and output, individual differences and how they affect acquisition, whether instruction matters, and the constraints on acquisition. The theories and frameworks consist of universal grammar and linguistic theory, emergentism and usage-based theories, the Declarative/Procedural Model, Complexity Theory and Dynamic Systems, input processing, the Interaction Hypothesis, Processability Theory, Sociocultural Theory, and Skill Acquisition Theory. This edition has been updated and expanded to reflect a wider range of theories and developments. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
