Book Information


Title: Lexical Processing in Second Language Learners
Subtitle: Papers and Perspectives in Honour of Paul Meara
Edited By: Tess Fitzpatrick
Andy Barfield
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition

This book presents studies from authors at the cutting edge of second
language vocabulary research, whose output represents much of the current
focus and direction of work in this area. The authors address various
aspects of L2 lexical processing and explore different models of
acquisition, processing and storage. The studies are linked by the fact
that the authors have all belonged to the same dynamic and influential
vocabulary acquisition research group led by Paul Meara. Alison Wray
provides an overview of how Meara has led this group’s research activities
in an innovative PhD programme, and John Read and Paul Nation contribute a
critical evaluation of Meara’s wide-ranging contributions to the field of
vocabulary acquisition research. The research studies presented here are
relevant and replicable, offering researchers and teachers many valuable
and critical insights into lexical processing in second language learners.
