This extremely up-to-date book, "Speech Production and Second Language Acquisition" is the first volume in the exciting new series, "Cognitive Science and Second Language Acquisition." This new volume provides a thorough overview of the field and proposes a new integrative model of how L2 speech is produced.
The study of speech production is its own subfield within cognitive science. One of the aims of this new book, as is true of the series, is to make cognitive science theory accessible to second language acquisition. "Speech Production and Second Language Acquisition" examines how research on second language and bilingual speech production can be grounded in L1 research conducted in cognitive science and in psycholinguistics. Highlighted is a coherent and straightforward introduction to the bilingual lexicon and its role in spoken language performance.
Like the rest of the series, "Speech Production and Second Language Acquisition" is tutorial in style, intended as a supplementary textbook for undergraduates and graduate students in programs of cognitive science, second language acquisition, applied linguistics, and language pedagogy.
