Title: The New Handbook of Second Language Acquisition
Subtitle: 2nd Revised edition
Edited By: William C. Ritchie
Tej K. Bhatia

"The New Handbook of Second Language Acquisition" is a thoroughly revised,
re-organized, and re-worked edition of Ritchie and Bhatia's 1996 handbook.
The work is divided into six parts, each devoted to a different aspect of
the study of SLA. Part I includes a recent history of methods used in SLA
research and an overview of currently used methods. Part II contains
chapters on Universal Grammar, emergentism, variationism,
information-processing, sociocultural, and cognitive-linguistic. Part III
is devoted to overviews of SLA research on lexicon, morphosyntax,
phonology, pragmatics, sentence processing, and the distinction between
implicit and explicit knowledge. Part IV examines neuropsycholgy of SLA,
another on child SLA, and the effects of age on second language acquisition
and use. Part V is concerned with the contribution of the linguistic
environment to SLA, including work on acquisition in different
environments, through the Internet, and by deaf learners. Finally, Part VI
treats social factors in SLA, including research on acquisition in contact
circumstances, on social identity in SLA, on individual differences in SLA,
and on the final state of SLA, bilingualism.
