Book Information


Title: EUROSLA Yearbook
Subtitle: Volume 8 (2008)
Edited By: Leah Roberts
Florence Myles
Annabelle David

The annual conference of the European Second Language Association provides
an opportunity for the presentation of second language research with a
genuinely European flavour. The theoretical perspectives adopted are
wide-ranging and may fall within traditions overlooked elsewhere. Moreover,
the studies presented are largely multi-lingual and cross-cultural, as
befits the make-up of modern-day Europe. At the same time, the work
demonstrates sophisticated awareness of scholarly insights from around the
world. The EUROSLA yearbook presents a selection each year of the very best
research from the annual conference. Submissions are reviewed and
professionally edited, and only those of the highest quality are selected.
Contributions are in English.
