Abstract:

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 set of universal structures, whereas the learning of
lexis is characterised by the building up of associations (or
connections). Yet these two systems must come together in the creation
of a whole linguistic system in the mind of an individual. This book
is designed to state the implications of these two paradigms in as
clear a way as possible through examples of the research carried out
within each paradigm and to examine how they can be made to
inter-relate in a way which would enable us to explain better the
overall process of SLA.
