Title: Vocabulary and Writing in a First and Second Language
Subtitle: Processes and Development
Written By: Dorte Albrechtsen

Description:

Vocabulary and Writing in a First and Second Language is based on a
large-scale empirical study. The innovative feature of the research was
that the same students were asked to do the same tasks in both languages
while reporting their thinking as they went along. Furthermore , they had
to undertake the same tasks even though they were of very different
experience, ranging from young children at school to university students.
Three areas of learners' competencies and skills were explored: vocabulary
knowledge, word guessing strategies and writing. The authors further
explore the relationship between the skills and describe the level of
development for individual learners within the three areas. In all cases,
statistical and qualitative analyses are offered, the latter being based on
the learners' own 'think-aloud' reports. Both researchers and teachers of
language will find this in-depth approach useful in understanding the
processes of both first and second language performance.
