Abstract

Book Description
An introduction to the field of second language learning for students without a substantial background in linguistics, this book became an instant success when it was first published in 1998, and was immediately hailed by the academic community as one of the clearest expositions of current theory in the field of second language learning. Written by an educationalist specialising in the teaching of a second language, and a linguist specialising in second language acquisition, this new edition of 'Second Language Learning Theories' provides an up-to-date introductory survey of the most active and significant theoretical perspectives on the subject.

Synopsis
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 specializing 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 there is more material on work in L2 phonology and lexis, as well as syntax. The evaluation sections in each chapter have been expanded and generally the book is rebalanced in favour of newer material. The first edition quickly established itself as the textbook of choice for students new to second language learning. The updates and revisions in this new edition ensure that the book remains as fresh, engaging and useful as the day it was first published.
