Book Information

   

Title: Input Matters in SLA
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691095
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

This volume bridges the knowledge gap between second language acquisition
researchers and second language pedagogy professionals in its focus on a
topic of mutual interest: input. The reader-friendly contributions from
seasoned researchers including Stephen Krashen, Bill VanPatten and new
voices offer a wide range of existing and new perspectives on the matter of
input. A rare feature of the book is that it includes extensive coverage by
experts including James Flege and Alene Moyer of the acquisition of the
sound system of a second language, where input seems to matter most. Those
who are just making their acquaintance with second language acquisition
research or updating their knowledge will find the editors’ introductory
chapter on past and current issues in the field particularly useful.
