Understanding Second Language Acquisition

Understanding Second Language Acquisition

The series attracts single or co-authored volumes from authors researching at the cutting edge of this dynamic field of interdisciplinary enquiry. The titles range from books that make such developments accessible to the non-specialist reader to those which explore in depth their relevance for the way language is to be conceived as a subject, and how courses and classroom activities are to be designed. As such, these books not only extend the field of applied linguistics itself and lend an additional significance to its enquiries, but also provide an indispensable professional foundation for language pedagogy and its practice.

The scope of the series includes:

second language acquisition
bilingualism and multi/plurilingualism
language pedagogy and teacher education
testing and assessment
language planning and policy
language internationalization
technology-mediated communication
discourse-, conversation-, and contrastive-analysis
pragmatics
stylistics
lexicography
