Title: The Psychology of Second Language Acquisition
Written By: Zoltán Dörnyei

The Oxford Applied Linguistics series is aimed at applied linguists,
lecturers, teacher trainers, students on advanced/postgraduate courses, and
practitioners interested in gaining a wider perspective on their work. It
provides up-to-date coverage of the latest research in applied linguistics,
together with discussion of psychological, sociological, and other
theoretical issues of relevance to the study of language in the real world.

The Psychology of Second Language Acquisition offers a systematic and
accessible overview of the main psychological areas and theories in order
to keep abreast of the ongoing paradigm shift. Readers will find succinct
and up-to-date descriptions of a wide range of psycholinguistic and
neuropsychological topics such as language and the brain; neuroimaging and
other research methods in psycholinguistics and brain research;
non-nativist approaches to language acquisition; explicit/implicit learning
and memory, procedural/declarative knowledge, and the automatization of
language skills; learner characteristics, age effects, and the critical
period hypothesis; and the psychological basis of language learning in
educational contexts.
