It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

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: Individual Differences and Processing Instruction
Edited By: James F. Lee
Alessandro G. Benati

This collection of essays builds on the authors’ previous work and aims to open an additional branch of research in processing instruction, and to stimulate further research. This is the first collection of studies that empirically addresses the role that individual differences, such as age, gender, and native language background, might play in the results generated by processing instruction.

"Individual Differences and Processing Instruction makes a significant contribution to L2 research on processing instruction by carefully examining the role of individual differences on results generated by this pedagogical intervention. A clear strength of the volume is its breadth in relation to the range of individual variables that are investigated, the linguistic forms and structures that are included and the number of first and second languages that are examined. A must-read for researchers and students interested in instructed second language acquisition in general and processing instruction in particular.'
Teresa Cadierno, University of Southern Denmark
