Abstract:

Key Terms in Second Language Acquisition includes definitions of key terms
within second language acquisition, and also provides accessible summaries
of the key issues within this complex area of study.

The final section presents a list of key readings in second language
acquisition that signposts the reader towards classic articles and also
provides a springboard to further study. The text is accessibly written,
with complicated terms and concepts explained in an easy to understand way.

Key Terms in Second Language Acquisition is an essential resource for
students.

"This is a well-crafted primer for the newcomer to the field of second
language research. The discussion of key issues is clear and
straightforward, and illustrated effectively with simple linguistic
examples. The definitions of the key terms are equally good. The text
provides an excellent point of entry to the more technical research
reported in the specialist journals."
Professor Roger Hawkins, Department of Language & Linguistics, University
of Essex, UK

"Key Terms in Second Language Acquisition is the text we've been waiting
for to introduce students to the field of SLA. I used the manuscript in my
introduction to SLA graduate seminar and found this to be the ideal book to
help students appreciate and critique the major issues and questions that
drive this burgeoning discipline. Students praised this text for being easy
to read and digest and appreciated the handy key terms and up-to-date
references. This book will quickly become a key text in all introductory
SLA courses."
Wynne Wong, Associate Professor of French & SLA, The Ohio State University,
USA

"VanPatten (Texas Tech Univ.) and Benati (Univ. of Greenwich, UK) have
written a book that will serve as a handy reference tool for students
interested in the growing discipline of second language acquisition. [...]
Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students."
