Editorial Reviews

Review

"Catherine Doughty and Michael Long have emerged as two of the most knowledgeable, authoritative, and sanest voices in the current contentious debates over truth claims in second language acquisition. Their stewardship of the chapters in this volume – and authorship of two articles plus an overview and an interesting afterword that treats SLA as cognitive science – has produced some very strong critical summaries of several central ideas in these debates. The range and depth of many of the chapters is great and I have learned much from revisiting subjects I thought I knew well, such as transfer, fossilization, and individual variation." Larry Selinker, New York University


"Arguing that SLA research should be viewed as a branch of cognitive science, the editors have served up a feast for, and about, the mind. This Handbook will be read, consulted, and referred to again and again." Diane Larsen-Freeman, University of Michigan


"The Handbook of Second Language Acquisition lives up to its name: it provides a remarkable overview of the field, whose future the editors intelligently advocate to be an integral constituent of cognitive science. A rainbow of topics and theoretical stances promises much stimulation to a wide readership. The volume will no doubt serve as a highly appreciated resource for novice and expert alike." Bonnie D. Schwartz, University of Hawaii

"Highly recommended." Choice

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an affordable, authoritative resource on SLA research. Chapters from leading research figures, including Long, DeKeyser, Nick Ellis, and Peter Robinson will prove invaluable for the language teacher, graduate student, or researcher. The chapters are broadly representative of major approaches to language acquisition research. Highly recommended.

I had to read about half of this book for a graduate seminar in SLA this semester. Some of the chapters get a bit challenging to read, but overall, it's a good intermediate introduction to the subject.

This is a comprehensive collection of chapters and articles by the original authors. It is well worth the cost if you are serious about understanding this topic, and the research in the area.
