The Editor and Board of LANGUAGE TEACHING are pleased to announce that the
recipient of the 2007 Christopher Brumfit thesis award is Dr Irina Elgort.
Dr Elgort’s PhD thesis investigates the effect of intentional
decontextualised learning on L2 vocabulary acquisition. Dr Elgort completed
her dissertation at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand
under the supervision of Dr Paul Warren and Dr Paul Nation. This year’s
runner up was Dr Ute Knoch. Her Ph.D. thesis, on developing a theoretically
based and empirically-developed rating scale and evaluating whether such a
scale functions more reliably and validly in a diagnostic writing context
than a pre-existing scale, was presented at the University of Auckland, New
Zealand, under the supervision of Dr Rod Ellis.

The 2008 award is now open for submissions until November 30th 2008.
