Abstract:

This book explores the contributions that cognitive linguistics and
psychology, including neuropsychology, have made to the understanding of
the way that second languages are processed and learnt. It examines areas
of phonology, word recognition and semantics, examining 'bottom-up'
decoding processes as compared with 'top-down' processes as they affect
memory. It also discusses second language learning from the
acquisition/learning and nativist/connectionist perspectives. These ideas
are then related to the methods that are used to teach second languages,
primarily English, in formal classroom situations. This examination
involves both 'mainstream' communicative approaches, and more traditional
methods widely used to teach EFL throughout the world.

The book is intended to act both as a textbook for students who are
studying second language teaching and as an exploration of issues for the
interested teacher who would like to further extend their understanding of
the cognitive processes underlying their teaching.
