Dissertation Title: Teachers' Reactions to Foreign Language Learner Output

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Dissertation Director:
Carmen Pérez-Vidal,

Dissertation Abstract:

The general objective of the dissertation is to develop a better
understanding of one recurrent practice in formal FL instruction: how
teachers react to FL learner output in classroom oral interactions. To this
end, the formal features and phenomena involved in Teacher Reaction
Episodes (TREs) are addressed. 'Teacher reactions' refer to any
instructional strategies that handle learner oral productions. In
traditional SLA research, this teacher practice has been conceptually
examined under the rubric of 'corrective feedback'.This thesis covers
multidisciplinary theoretical and methodological approaches related to
TREs. Video data collected from a case study of two Senegalese
international schools illustrate the differential effects of teacher
reactions on FL learner uptake. Through corpus-based evidence from three
immersion settings, an attempt is made to discover conditions and means for
felicitous TREs in acquisitional terms. Learners receiving metalinguistic
feedback appear to generate more uptake than those receiving recasts.
