Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Implicit and Explicit Language Learning
Subtitle: Conditions, Processes, and Knowledge in SLA and Bilingualism
Edited By: Cristina Sanz
Ronald P. Leow

Over the last several decades, neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists,
and psycholinguists have investigated the implicit and explicit continuum
in language development and use from theoretical, empirical, and
methodological perspectives. This book addresses these perspectives in an
effort to build connections among them and to draw pedagogical implications
when possible.

The volume includes an examination of the psychological and neurological
processes of implicit and explicit learning, what aspects of language
learning can be affected by explicit learning, and the effects of
bilingualism on the mental processing of language. Rigorous empirical
research investigations probe specific aspects of acquiring morphosyntax
and phonology, including early input, production, feedback, age, and study
abroad. A final section explores the rich insights provided into language
processing by bilingualism, including such major areas as aging, third
language acquisition, and language separation.
