Abstract:

This book presents the first detailed and comprehensive study of
information highlighting in advanced learner language, echoing the
increasing interest in questions of near-native competence in SLA research
and contributing to the description of advanced interlanguages. It examines
the production and comprehension of specific means of information
highlighting in English by native speakers and German learners of English
as a foreign language, presenting triangulated experimental and learner
corpus data as corroborating evidence. The study focuses on learners' use
of discourse-pragmatically motivated variations of the basic word order
such as inversion, preposing, and it- and wh-clefts, an
underexplored field in SLA research to date.The book also provides a
critical re-assessment of the study of pragmatics within SLA. It has
largely been neglected to date that L2 pragmatic knowledge includes more
than the sociopragmatic and pragmalinguistic abilities for understanding
and performing speech acts. Thus, the book argues for an extension of the
scope of inquiry in interlanguage pragmatics beyond the cross-cultural
investigation of speech acts. It also discusses pedagogical implications
for foreign language teaching and will be of interest to applied linguists
and SLA researchers, language teachers and curriculum designers.
