Customer Review

on October 19, 2007
My point was not about my expectations of what psycholinguistics is or is not. I could, however, point out to the other reviewer that most research from that field does not cover L2 acquisition, but rather languages that are acquired 'naturally', from birth.

My main point is about what a cognitive approach to SLA should be. I don't think or expect it to be so behaviouristic. Nor do I expect a book marketed as drawing on psycholinguistics to be so lacking in citations of research from psycholinguistics.

As it is, this book is more a recapitulation of a lot of SLA research about tasks, much of it from Skehan himself. The title and the blurb are misleading. As for its applicability, that is, like so many things, what sort of 'stone soup' the ELT practitioner wishes to make. I highly doubt if Skehan teaches a SL or FL.

The Robinson book which Amazon pairs this with for selling is a far superior collection of research and analysis, by the way. I will try to get around to reviewing it.
