Abstract:

The reality of multicultural societies and globalization has increased the
demand for language abilities that far exceed those that have typically
been associated with communicative competence in a second language. This
book examines the acquisition of advanced levels of ability in three parts:
theoretical; descriptive; and instructional. It moves beyond the
traditional constraints of second language acquisition research by linking
systemic functional linguistics and sociocultural theory. The contributors
draw primarily on the work of Halliday, Vygotsky and Bakhtin, as well as
empirical data from the language classroom, to suggest practical
applications towards advanced literacy and linguistic competence. Advanced
Language Learning will be of interest to academics researching systemic
functional linguistics, second language acquisition and applied linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
