Abstract:

This book is a pioneer attempt to bridge the gap between the fields of secondlanguage acquisition (SLA) and second and foreign language (L2) writing. Itsultimate aim is to advance our understanding of written language learning bycompiling a collection of theoretical meta-reflections and empirical studies thatshed new light on two crucial dimensions of the theory and research in the field:first, the manner in which L2 users learn to express themselves in writing (thelearning-to-write dimension), and, second, the manner in which the engagementin written output practice can contribute to developing competences in an L2(the writing-to-learn dimension). These two areas of disciplinary inquiry have upuntil now developed separately: the learning-to-write dimension has been thecornerstone of L2 writing research, whereas the writing-to-learn one has beentheorized and researched within SLA studies, hence the relevance of the bookfor exploring L2 writing-SLA interfaces.
