Title: Written corrective feedback in second language acquisition and writing studies
Author: Dana R Ferris
Institution: California State University, Sacramento
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition
Abstract: Written Corrective Feedback, referred to hereafter as ‘written CF’ and also known as ‘grammar correction’ or ‘error correction’, has been a controversial topic in second language studies over the past fifteen years. Inspired by John Truscott's thought-provoking 1996 essay in Language Learning, many different researchers have undertaken new programs of investigation, while others have engaged in scholarly synthesis and argumentation around the topic.
