Title: Cognition and Second Language Instruction
Edited By: Peter Robinson
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521802881
Series Title: Cambridge Applied Linguistics
Description:

The influence of cognitive processing on second language acquisition (SLA),
and on the development of second language (SL) instruction, has always been
a subject of major interest to both SLA researchers and those involved in
SL pedagogy. Recent theoretical research into SLA and SL pedagogy has shown
renewed interest in the role of cognitive variables such as attention,
short, working, and long term memory, and automaticity of language
processing. This volume first examines the theoretical foundations of
research into the cognitive processes underlying SLA, and then describes
various implications for pedagogically oriented research and for SL
classroom practice. This book's blend of research from the cognitive
sciences and applied linguistics make it an excellent introduction to
applied linguists and language teachers interested in the psycholinguistic
processes underlying SLA.
