In just several decades of its existence, the field of second language
research has not only changed the way we think about the teaching and
learning of a second language, but has also reshaped our knowledge of
human languages in general. The broadly-defined theme for the annual
meeting of the Second Language Research Forum held in Madison,
Wisconsin, USA in September, 2000 - Second Language Research: Past,
Present, and Future - was selected to encourage the discussion of a
wide range of issues that comprise this dynamic and rapidly growing
field. The participants in the forum reexamined classic problems
associated with second language acquisition (SLA), demonstrated the
application of current advances in the field from a variety of
perspectives, and pointed to advances in this vast area of inquiry
known as "second language research."

The 16 peer-reviewed papers included in this proceedings provide an
accurate representation of the major themes of SLA research presented
at the conference. The papers fall into four broad categories that
represent the past, present, and future of SLA research. These are
papers addressing phonological and syntactic approaches toward SLA
research (I); papers investigating SLA from the perspective of
cognitive psychology (II); papers that examine the practices of
teachers and students in the second and foreign language classrooms
(III); and finally, papers concerned with research methodology and
terminology (IV). The introduction can be found on our web site at along with easy on-line
ordering and details on all of our linguistics titles.
