Abstract:

How do people learn nonnative languages? Is there one part or function of
our brains solely dedicated to language processing, or do we apply our
general information-processing abilities when learning a new language? In
this book, an interdisciplinary collaboration of scholars and researchers
presents an overview of the latter approach to adult second language
acquisition and brings together, for the first time, a comprehensive
picture of the latest research on this subject.

Clearly organized into four distinct but integrated parts, Mind and Context
in Adult Second Language Acquisition first provides an introduction to
information-processing approaches and the tools for students to understand
the data. The next sections explain factors that affect language learning,
both internal (attention and awareness, individual differences, and the
neural bases of language acquisition) and external (input, interaction, and
pedagogical interventions). It concludes by looking at two pedagogical
applications: processing instruction and content based instruction.

This important and timely volume is a must-read for students of language
learning, second language acquisition, and linguistics who want to better
understand the information-processing approaches to learning a non-primary
language. This book will also be of immense interest to language scholars,
program directors, teachers, and administrators in both second language
acquisition and cognitive psychology.
