Title: Form-Meaning Connections in Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Bill VanPatten
Jessica Williams
Mark Overstreet
Series Title: The Second Language Acquisition Series: Theoretical and Methodological Issues
Description:

Form-Meaning Connections in Second Language Acquisition, edited by Bill VanPatten, Jessica Williams, Susanne Rott, and Mark Overstreet, is the first volume to bring together empirical and theoretical research under the theme of form-meaning connections, defined as “how learners respond internally to their exposure to linguistic data.” It presents linguistic and cognitive approaches to second language acquisition, attempting to integrate external and internal issues in interlanguage development while outlining future directions for research.

The chapters are based on an interdisciplinary collection of papers presented at the “Form-Meaning Conference” held in Chicago in 2002. The chapter authors, all well-known second language acquisition scholars, address form-meaning issues from a variety of settings, as well as, from multiple perspectives.

Form-Meaning Connections in Second Language Acquisition will be an appealing resource for researchers and graduate students in applied linguistics, cognitive psychology, linguistics, and language pedagogy.
