Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Speaking and Instructed Foreign Language Acquisition
Edited By: Mirosław Pawlak

Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Developing the ability to speak in a foreign language is an arduous task. This is
because it involves the mastery of different language subsystems,
simultaneous focus on comprehension and production, and the impact of a
range of social factors. This challenge is further compounded in situations in
which learners have limited access to the target language. Thus, there is a need
to explore issues related to teaching, learning and testing speaking with a view
to translating the guidelines based on theoretical positions and research findings
into feasible and context-specific pedagogical recommendations. This is the
rationale behind this book, which considers speaking from leading theoretical
perspectives, investigates individual variables which affect its development, and
reports the results of studies focusing on different aspects of its instructed
acquisition.
