Abstract:

"Reiko Yoshida's book starts from the assumption that language learners are
active participants in the language classroom and that all of their
language use, including language used privately, is relevant to their
language learning. Much of the language use analysed in this book would
normally not be available for a language teacher because it is by
definition private and would therefore often be overlooked as an important
part of learning. This book makes available what is often hidden and
examines how such hidden language is not only relevant for but a
constituent part of language learning. Yoshida's investigation of personal
speech opens up second language acquisition research beyond a focus on the
code to be learnt and places the learner on centre stage in language
acquisition. Her study makes a valuable contribution to understanding
language learning as a socioculturally constructed enterprise and reveals
the importance of what students do with their whole language repertoire in
the process of acquiring a new language."
- Professor Tony Liddicoat, University of South Australia

The verbal participation of learners in language classrooms offers a rich
seam of data to the applied linguist. Overt and covert participation, when
examined, can reveal both the structures of a classroom and elicit
privileged information on participant's self-perceptions. This book
examines the verbal participation of learners in Japanese as a Foreign
Language classrooms. Verbal interactions with teachers and classmates and
'private' speech acts are examined in relation to the classroom context and
also sociocultural factors such as the learner's motivation and the
teacher's belief in their own methods.

The examination of corrective feedback episodes and learners' private
speech uses recorded speech and stimulated recall interviews recorded over
the period of a year. The book's main focus is on Corrective Feedback
episodes, and explains not only the language used in class but also
teacher's and learner's own perceptions.

This book will be of interest to researchers in applied linguistics and
second language acquisition, especially those involved with Japanese as a
second or other language. It will also appeal to teachers of second and
foreign languages.
