Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Edited By: Bonnie Swierzbin

Series Title: Selected Proceedings of the Second Language Research Forum

The 1999 Second Language Research Forum was held at the University of Minnesota in September 1999. These selected proceedings include 22 of the more than 100 papers presented at the conference. The book is divided into 6 sections: 1. The Impact of Social Factors on SLA 2. Discourse Structure 3. Cognitive Factors: Universal Grammar and Transfer 4. Cognitive Factors: Input, Output and Negotiation 5. Cognitive Factors: Learning Strategies 6. Social Factors The papers in this volume are representative of the broad range of research being done on second language acquisition (SLA). Some studies focus on the learning strategies employed by second-language learners. Some examine the internal psychological process of SLA, including work on the principles and parameters of the universal language faculty. Others represent the second-language learner as a social being, documenting the social and interactional forces that impact the learner. A few examine the interplay of external (social) and internal (psychological) forces in SLA.
