Book Information


Title: Studies in French Applied Linguistics
Edited By: Dalila Ayoun
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 21

Studies in French Applied Linguistics invites the reader to adopt a
broad perspective on applied linguistics, illustrating the fascinating
multifaceted work researchers are conducted in so many various,
inter-connected subfields. The five chapters of the first part are
dedicated to the first and second language acquisition of French in various
settings: First language acquisition by normal children from a generative
perspective and by children with Specific Language Impairment; second
language acquisition in Canadian immersion settings, from a neurolinguistic
approach to phonology and natural language processing and CALL. The six
chapters of the second part explore the contribution of French in various
subfields of applied linguistics such as an anthropological approach to
literacy issues in Guadeloupean Kréyòl, literacy issues in new
technologies, phonological and lexical innovations in the banlieues, French
in North Africa, language planning and policy in Quebec, as well as the
emerging field of forensic linguistics from an historical perspective.
