Theories in Second Language Acquisition surveys the major theoretical approaches currently used in second language acquisition (SLA) research, providing a systematic and coherent presentation in a single source. Each chapter follows a consistent chapter model constructed around the same set of questions, including "What is the Theory?" "What are the major constructs?" "What counts as evidence?" "What are the common misunderstandings about the theory?" The answers to these questions are written at a basic level by a leading expert in the respective theoretical model. As a result, the volume as a whole presents complex ideas in an accessible manner.
 
The book’s methodical format allows for easy comparison of approaches. Topics of discussion throughout include:
*early theories in SLA;
*linguistic theory, universal grammar, and SLA;
*the concept-oriented approach;
*the associative-cognitive creed;
*skill acquisition theory; and
*processibility theory and autonomous induction.
 
Intended to serve as an introductory textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, Theories in Second Language Acquisition is an exceptionally thorough resource that effectively expounds the theoretical foundations of the field.

Bill VanPatten, recently of the University of Illinois at Chicago, has published widely in the fields of second language acquisition and second language teaching. His research interests include input processing, second and bilingual sentence processing, and the effects of instruction.


Jessica Williams is a professor in the Applied Linguistics/TESOL program in the Department of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is director of the ESL composition program and less commonly taught languages. Her research areas include lexical acquisition, the effect of instruction, and second language writing, with a particular focus on writing centers.


Bill VanPatten is an award-winning scholar and teacher, and author of numerous publications in second language acquisition and second language teaching. His Spanish textbooks have been best-sellers at the college level.

Bill is widely known for his research on input processing and processing instruction, a focus on form that has received attention around the world. His work now forms entries in the Routledge Handbook of Second Language Acquisition as well as the Routledge Encyclopedia of Second Language Acquisition, and two of his articles are among the top ten articles in the journal Studies in Second Language Acquisition cited by scholars.

Instructors of language know him not only for his innovative teaching materials in Spanish (and some soon to be released on French), but also for the widely used Making Communicative Language Teaching Happen, co-authored with James F. Lee.

And if you're interested in his fiction, check out Chicago Tales, a collection of short stories.

Bill is Professor of Spanish and Second Language Studies at Michigan State University, where he also the Director of Romance Language Instruction.

"Unfortunately, this book is one of the most poorly written books to which I have been exposed at the university level. Explanations are verbose and convoluted, there are errors in simple editing, and the book is an overall frustration. I have to believe there are texts available that provide for a clear and concise overview of the theories of second language acquisition."
 
"This text provides a reasonable overview of the major current theories of second language acquisition. Each chapter is laid out in the same manner, addresses a core set of questions and provides information for further reading. This structure helps tremendously because each chapter is authored by different authors, and that can sometimes lead to disjointed text. It's not as in-depth as some texts, but it covers a broad range of theories in a cogent fashion. It provides enough information for beginners in the field to be able to make sense out of the research.

The major drawbacks are that it is overly heavy on psycholinguistically oriented theories and it provides no data for analysis. Thus, it works best if paired with another text that can provide these alternatives."
 
"The book is great and I received it fast. I would defenitely buy from this seller again."
