"Research in Second Language Acquisition: Empirical Evidence Across
Languages" provides an overview of current research within the
Processability Theory framework (Pienemann 1998; 2005). The articles in
this volume combine a more theoretical approach in order to further extend
the theory and studies utilizing PT to further investigate bilingual
language acquisition and language development in natural and institutional
settings. Taking these different aspects into consideration, this volume is
organised in two parts.
Part 1 Second Language Processing: Contributions to Theory Development
contains a number of papers discussing the inclusion of further theoretical
aspects into PT, focusing on English as a second language.
In Part 2 Second Language Grammars across Languages, PT is applied to a
number of typologically different languages and contexts.
