This edited volume represents state of the field research linking cognition
and second language acquisition, reflecting the experience of the learner
when engaged in noticing, input/output processing, retrieval, and even
attrition of target forms. Contributions are both theoretical and
practical, describing a variety of L1, L2 and L3 combinations from around
the world as observed in spoken, written, and computer-mediated contexts.
The book relates conditions of language, task, medium or environment to how
learners make decisions about language, with discussions about the
application or efficacy of these conditions on linguistic success and
development, and pedagogical implications.
