Form Meaning Connections in Second Language Acquisition is an
interdisciplinary and timely edited book of essays and empirical
studies, most of which are based on the papers presented at the Form
and Meaning Conference held in Chicago in 2002. The goal of the
conference and now of the book is to present linguistic and cognitive
approaches to second language acquisition, attempting to integrate
external and internal issues in interlanguage development, while
outlining directions for future research The editors address questions
such as: What is the nature and sequence of the form-meaning mapping
process? How are these connections made? How are these connections
used to construct grammars and lexicons? And, how can conditions and
external factors be manipulated to improve the chances of making these
form-meaning connections?

Contributors to this volume include such second language acquisition
scholars as Susan Gass, Nick Ellis, Kathleen Bardovi-Harlig, Catherine
Doughty, and Diane Larsen-Freeman. They address these form-meaning
issues from a variety of settings and from multiple perspectives.

Researchers and graduate students in applied linguistics, cognitive
psychology, linguistics and language pedagogy will find this volume to
be an important resource.
