Textbooks

  1. Now Available: Theories in Second Language Acquisition: An Introduction, 2nd Edition

    The second edition of Theories in Second Language Acquisition seeks to build on the strengths of the first edition by surveying the major theories currently used in second language acquisition research. This volume is an ideal introductory text for undergraduate and graduate students in SLA and language teaching. Each chapter focuses on a single theory, written by a leading scholar in the field in an easy-to-follow style – a basic foundational description of the theory, relevant data or research models used with this theory, common misunderstandings, and a sample study from the field to show the theory in practice. This text is designed to provide a consistent and coherent presentation for those new to the field who seek basic understanding of theories that underlie contemporary SLA research.

  2. Now Available: The Diagnosis of Reading in a Second or Foreign Language

    The Diagnosis of Reading in a Second or Foreign Language explores the implications of language assessment research on classroom-based assessment practices by providing an in-depth look at the little-examined field of diagnosis in second and foreign language reading. This volume examines the development of second and foreign language reading and how subsequent research findings, couched in this knowledge, can help facilitate a more-informed teaching approach in second and foreign language classrooms.

  1. Now Available: Researching Identity and Interculturality

    "This volume makes a valuable contribution to developing research in interculturality by going beyond description of research method to engage critically with the methodical consequences of the complex constructs of identity, culture and interculturality that confront any researcher in the field. The volume works through important new possibilities for developing accounts of identity in intercultural contexts that will enrich scholarship in the field both conceptually and methodologically."Tony Liddicoat, Professor in Applied Linguistics, School of Communication, International Studies and Languages, University of South Australia 

    Researching Identity and Interculturality focuses on advances in research methodology in an interdisciplinary field framed by discourses of identity and interculturality. It includes a range of qualitative studies: studies of interaction, narrative studies, conversation analysis, ethnographic studies, postcolonial studies and critical discourse studies, and emphasizes the role of discourse and power in all studies of identity and interculturality.
