Title: Computer-Assisted Language Learning
Edited By: Philip Hubbard
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415465397
Series Title: Critical Concepts in Linguistics
Description:

Serious work using computers to support language teaching and learning
began in the 1960s, but it was not until the beginning of the 1980s when
microcomputers began to proliferate that groups of practitioners began
forming professional groups and a formal identification of the field
occurred. Although the early promise of computer-assisted language learning
(or ‘CALL’), to revolutionize second-language learning has not been met,
the past quarter century has seen a fascinating range of growth. This is
not only because of lessons learned from research and practice, but also
due to the rapid and continuing shifts in the technology itself.

Nominally a branch of applied linguistics, 'CALL' is truly
interdisciplinary, drawing its core concepts not only from linguistics, but
also from computer science, speech engineering, psychology, sociology,
second-language acquisition, and general education.

This new four-volume title from Routledge will allow 'CALL' practitioners,
researchers, and students to easily access the best and most influential
foundational and cutting-edge scholarship. The is also a comprehensive
introduction to critical concepts in 'CALL' for applied linguists and
language educators interested in the growing role of technology in
second-language acquisition.
