Book Information

   

Title: Silence in Second Language Acquisition
Subtitle: A Psychoanalytic Reading
Written By: Colette A. Granger
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Silence in Second Language Acquisition examines the under-researched and often troubling phenomenon of silence in second language learning through a triangulation of SLA research, memoirs and language learner diaries, and psychoanalytic concepts of anxiety, ambivalence, conflict and loss. It moves beyond the view of silence as the mere absence of speech, inviting the reader to consider it as both a psychical event and a linguistic moment in the continuous process of identity formation.
