Title: Theories in Second Language Acquisition
Subtitle: An Introduction
Edited By: Bill VanPatten
Jessica Williams
Description:

"Theories in Second Language Acquisition" surveys the major theoretical
approaches currently used in second language acquisition (SLA) research,
providing a systematic and coherent presentation in a single source. Each
chapter follows a consistent chapter model constructed around the same set
of questions, including "What is the Theory?" "What are the major
constructs?" "What counts as evidence?" "What are the common
misunderstandings about the theory?" The answers to these questions are
written at a basic level by a leading expert in the respective theoretical
model. As a result, the volume as a whole presents complex ideas in an
accessible manner.

Intended to serve as an introductory textbook for advanced undergraduate
and beginning graduate students, "Theories in Second Language Acquisition"
is an exceptionally thorough resource that effectively expounds the
theoretical foundations of the field.
