Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Implicit and Explicit Language Learning
Subtitle: Conditions, Processes, and Knowledge in SLA and Bilingualism
Edited By: Cristina Sanz
Ronald P. Leow
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/book/languages/implicit-and-explicit-language-learning
Description:

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.
