Title: Low-Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition
Subtitle: Proceedings of the Inaugural Symposium - Tilburg 05
Edited By: Ineke van de Craats

Series Title: LOT Occasional Series
Description:

Language and literacy development by adult first time readers in a second
language is a new and almost unexplored domain. Research has been carried
out in different disciplines by linguists, psycho-linguists, psychologists
and educational researchers. The aim of the inaugural LESLLA workshop in
Tilburg 2005 was to bring together researchers from the different
disciplines working on the acquisition of literacy or of a second language
by adult immigrants with little or no schooling. The present volume
contains the proceedings of this first workshop. The papers provide a
multi-country and multi-target language overview of recent developments in
the various disciplines, introducing the reader less familiar disciplines.
The low-educated and low-literate or non-literate learner is the central
theme in all contributions, which are of interest to both researchers and
to those working with low-educated second language and literacy learners.

With contributions by: Alan Juffs (Pittsburgh), Astrid Geudens (Antwerp;
Leuven), Martha Young-Scholten and Nancy Strom (Newcastle; Proliteracy),
Jeanne Kurvers, Roeland van Hout and Ton Vallen (Tilburg), Larry Condelli
and Heide Wrigley (AIR, Literacy Work International), Anne-Mieke
Janssen-van Dieten (Nijmegen), Nancy Faux (Virginia Commonwealth), and
Willemijn Stockmann (Tilburg).
