Abstract:

Methods in current instructed second language acquisition research range
from laboratory experiments to ethnography using non-obtrusive participant
observation, from cross-sectional designs to longitudinal case studies.
Many different types of data serve as the basis for analysis, including
reaction times measurements, global test scores, paper and pencil measures,
introspective comments, grammaticality judgements, as well as textual data
(elicited or naturalistic, oral or written, relating to comprehension or
production). Some studies rely on extensive quantification of data, while
others may favour a more qualitative and hermeneutic analytic approach.

Many of these issues and methods are exemplified by the contributions to
this volume. Data-based studies included here deal with the acquisition of
specific linguistic phenomena (e.g. verb and noun morphology, lexicon,
clause structures) in a range of target languages (e.g. English, French,
German, Russian) from a variety of settings involving different
instructional approaches (e.g. traditional foreign language classes,
immersion classes, intensive ESL classes, content and language integrated
language classes). Collectively, the chapters in this book illustrate the
productivity and diversity of current research on instructed second
language acquisition. As such they serve as a valuable resource for
researchers in SLA, psycholinguistics, linguistics, and language education.
