Abstract:

How can theories of language development be understood and applied in your
language classroom?

By presenting a range of linguistic perspectives from formal to functional
to cognitive, this book highlights the relevance of second language
acquisition research to the language classroom. Following a brief
historical survey of the ways in which language has been viewed, Whong
clearly discusses the basic tenets of Chomskyan linguistics, before
exploring ten generalisations about second language development in terms of
their implications for language teaching. Emphasising the formal generative
approach, the book explores well-known language teaching methods, looking
at the extent to which linguistic theory is relevant to the different
approaches. This is the first textbook to provide an explicit discussion of
language teaching from the point of view of formal linguistics.
