Abstract:

Theories in Second Language Acquisition surveys the major theoretical 
approaches currently used in second language acquisition (SLA) research, 
providing a systematic and coherent presentation in a single source. Each 
chapter follows a consistent chapter model constructed around the same set 
of questions, including "What is the Theory?" "What are the major 
constructs?" "What counts as evidence?" "What are the common 
misunderstandings about the theory?" The answers to these questions are 
written at a basic level by a leading expert in the respective theoretical 
model. As a result, the volume as a whole presents complex ideas in an 
accessible manner.
 
The book's methodical format allows for easy comparison of approaches. 
Topics of discussion throughout include:
- early theories in SLA;
- linguistic theory, universal grammar, and SLA;
- the concept-oriented approach;
- the associative-cognitive creed;
- skill acquisition theory; and
- processibility theory and autonomous induction.
 
Intended to serve as an introductory textbook for advanced undergraduate 
and beginning graduate students, Theories in Second Language Acquisition 
is an exceptionally thorough resource that effectively expounds the 
theoretical foundations of the field.
