Abstract:

Attempts to explain children's ability to focus on language as medium rather
than message have varied dramatically over the years. Studies in the field of
metacognition have shown that this has a bearing on children's growing
metalinguistic awareness. Conversely, children's ability to reflect upon and
control their own use of language has been seen to have a bearing on the
emergence of general metacognitive processes. However, significant
differences have emerged not only in the interpretation of the research
findings but also in the attempt to reconcile such findings with those of
traditional anecdotal sources and to create more explanatory theoretical
models.

Starting with a critical review of the various theoretical approaches in the area
of metacognition, this book explores in detail a socio-cultural approach,
examining the origin, function and cognitive status of metalinguistic
awareness. By elaborating and refining the analysis of writers such as
Vygotsky in the light of new developments in relevant fields, the author also
seeks to outline a model which can be applied to the pedagogic process. The
book will be of interest to students and scholars of children's language
development, applied linguistics and cognitive psychology, as well as to
teachers of foreign languages at all levels.

Contents: Metacognitive and metalinguistic processing - Metalinguistic
processing and language development - Towards a model of metalinguistic
awareness - Problems of differentiation - Metalinguistic awareness and
language planning - Metalinguistic awareness and pedagogy - Towards an
effective pedagogy for FLL - Towards a metatheory of SLT.

Anthony David Roberts worked for many years as head of modern languages
in inner London schools before taking up a lectureship at the Institute of

edited the Languages Forum journal from 1989-1996. On retirement in 1996,
he focused on his own writing and research, producing several works
