Abstract:

Theories in Second Language Acquisition surveys the major theoretical
approaches currently used in second language acquisition (SLA) research,
providing a systematic and coherent presentation in a single source. Each
chapter follows a consistent chapter model constructed around the same set
of questions, including "What is the Theory?" "What are the major
constructs?" "What counts as evidence?" "What are the common
misunderstandings about the theory?" The answers to these questions are
written at a basic level by a leading expert in the respective theoretical
model. As a result, the volume as a whole presents complex ideas in an
accessible manner.

The book's methodical format allows for easy comparison of approaches.
Topics of discussion throughout include:
- early theories in SLA;
- linguistic theory, universal grammar, and SLA;
- the concept-oriented approach;
- the associative-cognitive creed;
- skill acquisition theory; and
- processibility theory and autonomous induction.

Intended to serve as an introductory textbook for advanced undergraduate
and beginning graduate students, Theories in Second Language Acquisition
is an exceptionally thorough resource that effectively expounds the
theoretical foundations of the field.
