Title: Second Language Vocabulary Acquisition
Written By: Qing Ma
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11666
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 79
Description:

This book offers readers a basic grounding in L2 vocabulary acquisition. In
addition, it provides theoretical analyses and empirical data regarding
Chinese learners of English: their specific learning difficulties, needs,
strategies, etc.

The book provides an overview of the research in L2 vocabulary acquisition
in the last two decades. Linguistic, psycholinguistic, socio-cultural,
neurolinguistic, and corpus linguistics analyses are considered.

The book constructs a comprehensive framework for Computer Assisted
Vocabulary Learning (CAVL). This is achieved by providing an overview of
vocabulary learning in CALL and then proposing a big framework within which
most vocabulary learning programs can be conceptualized.

The author then gives a detailed account of how Chinese learners approach
English vocabulary learning. She provides an up-to-date picture of the
overall situation regarding the language policies adopted, the traditional,
orthodox approach to language learning, and the recent reforms implemented
in Chinese universities. General and specific vocabulary learning
difficulties encountered by Chinese learners are documented and analysed
and empirical studies are reported.
