Title: Problems in SLA
Written By: MichaelHLong
URL: http://www.routledge-ny.com/shopping_cart/products/product_detail.asp?sku=&isbn=9780805860849&parent
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition Research Series
Description:

Second language acquisition has an identity problem. It is a young field
struggling to emerge from the parent fields of education and applied
linguistics. In his new book, Problems in SLA, Mike Long proposes a way to
help second language acquisition develop a systematic and coherent focus
using the philosophy of science as the lens.

The volume is neatly organized in three parts--theory, research, and
practice. This structure allows a focus on areas of SLA of interest to many
in the field. These include theory proliferation and comparative theory
evaluation; the Critical Period Hypothesis and negative feedback; and the
practice of "synthetic" language teaching.

The controversial volume will be of interest to researchers, educators, and
graduate students in second language acquisition, applied linguistics,
TESOL, and linguistics programs. It may be recommended as additional
reading for an introductory SLA course in order to stimulate class discussions.
