Summary

i Routledge Applied Linguistics /i is a series of comprehensive resource books, providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics. br Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline. Section A, i Introduction /i , establishes the key terms and concepts and extends readers' techniques of analysis through practical application. Section B, i Extension /i , brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and discusses their contribution to the field. Section C, i Exploration /i , builds on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own research responses. Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended, interwoven and deconstructed, withthe reader's understanding strengthened by tasks and follow-up questions. br i Second Language Acquisition /i : br * introduces the key areas in the field, including: multilingualism, the role of teaching, the mental processing of multiple languages, and patterns of growth and decline br *explores the key theories and debates and elucidates areas of controversy br *gathers together influential readings from key names in the discipline, including: Vivian Cook, William E. Dunn and James P. Lantolf, S.P. Corder, and Nina Spada and Patsy Lightbown. br br Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, i Second Language Acquisition /i is an essential resource for students and researchers of applied linguistics.
