Abstract

This study examines the empirical differences between children with strong and weak language skills in the area of written language acquisition. While learning age has been extensively studied by researchers as the critical factor in variation between individuals, this study also considers global language competence. In conducting the study, the author used standardized language level measurements, psychological tests, and questionnaires.

Abstract

This edited volume brings together the work of a number of researchers working in the framework of Processability Theory (PT), a psycholinguistic theory of second language acquisition (SLA) (Pienemann 1998; 2005). The aim of the volume is two-fold: It engages with current issues in both theory development and theory application and focuses on theoretical developments within the framework of PT as well as issues related to second language teaching and assessment. In coordinating approaches to addressing both theoretical and applied aspects of SLA, this volume aims at bridging the gap between theory and practice. It also reflects the richness of debate within the field of PT-based research. The volume is intended for postgraduate students, SLA researchers as well as language teachers.

Abstract

Der Band thematisiert die Ausbildung mündlicher und schriftlicher Themenentfaltungsmuster von Schülern im Deutschunterricht. Erzählungen, Beschreibungen, Instruktionen, Argumentationen und Berichte sind im kommunikativen Alltag einer Gesellschaft die Grundformen der thematischen Entfaltung komplexer sprachlicher Äußerungen. Sie werden sowohl schriftlich als auch mündlich realisiert. Im schulischen Deutschunterricht sind solche Themenentfaltungsmuster tradierte didaktische Gattungen des Aufsatzunterrichts und auch im Kompetenzbereich „Sprechen und Zuhören" soll die mündliche Realisierung dieser Muster vermittelt werden. Aber gelten für mündliches Berichten, Argumentieren, Instruieren usw. dieselben Anforderungen wie beim Schreiben? Oder muss man abhängig von der sprachmedialen Realisierung von verschiedenen Mustern mit gleichen Labels ausgehen? Die Beiträge dieses Bandes erkunden das Feld aus textlinguistischer und sprachdidaktischer Sicht neu.

Abstract

This book focuses on learner-computer interactions (LCI) in second language learning environments drawing largely on sociocultural theories of language development. It brings together a rich and varied range of theoretical discussions and applications in order to illustrate the way in which LCI can enrich our comprehension of technology-mediated communication, hence enhancing learners’ digital literacy skills. The book is based on the premise that, in order to fully understand the nature of language and literacy development in digital spaces, researchers and practitioners in linguistics, sciences and engineering need to borrow from each others’ theoretical and practical toolkits. In light of this premise, themes include such aspects as educational ergonomics, affordances, complex systems learning, learner personas and corpora, while also describing such data collecting tools as video screen capture devices, eye-tracking or intelligent learning tutoring systems.

Abstract

Age-related changes in cognitive and language functions have been extensively researched over the past half-century. The older adult represents a unique population for studying cognition and language because of the many challenges that are presented with investigating this population, including individual differences in education, life experiences, health issues, social identity, as well as gender. The purpose of this book is to provide an advanced text that considers these unique challenges and assembles in one source current information regarding (a) language in the aging population and (b) current theories accounting for age-related changes in language function. A thoughtful and comprehensive review of current research spanning different disciplines that study aging will achieve this purpose. Such disciplines include linguistics, psychology, sociolinguistics, neurosciences, cognitive sciences, and communication sciences.

Abstract

This book presents a range of ongoing studies on atypical language development in Romance languages. Despite the steady increase in the number of studies on typical language development, there is still little research about atypical language development, especially in Romance languages. This book covers four main conditions causing atypical language development. Part I explores the linguistic and communicative characteristics of preterm children learning Romance languages. The focus of Part II centers on children with Specific Language Impairment. Hearing Loss in Part III is another relevant factor leading to atypical language development. The final part IV zeroes in on genetic syndromes coupled to cognitive impairment with special attention to language development. This book presents a much needed overview of the most recent findings in all relevant fields dealing with atypical language development in children speaking Romance languages.

Abstract

Drawing on both rule-based and constraint-based approaches, Voicing in Contrast examines typological differences in the laryngeal systems of Dutch and English and investigates the extent to which native speakers of Dutch acquire English obstruent voicing. The analysis is based on a substantial new data collection of conversational Dutch and English speech by speakers of different varieties of Dutch. The results of the study show that the English interlanguage of advanced learners contains a mixed laryngeal system with elements from Dutch as well as from English. The book discusses how this system could emerge and analyses the extent to which learners succeeded in suppressing neutralizing processes of devoicing and voice assimilation. The results of the empirical analysis are examined in the light of existing theoretical approaches to laryngeal systems. Although the focus is on Dutch and English, the frequent references to other languages invite the reader to carry out comparable analyses for other languages with similar laryngeal systems. A detailed description of the methodology also makes the book of interest to scholars working with large databases of spoken first and second language speech. A sample of the data is available on a CD-rom accompanying the book.

Abstract

How do children behave in conversations? The authors of this book provide answers that are relevant to research and practice. The analysis is based on authentic conversations in everyday situations. The discussion process and the situational embedding of the discussion actions are the focus of the investigations. The volume contains articles on argumentative conversations between children of preschool and elementary school age and on communication-promoting strategies of early childhood education professionals in daycare. In addition, framework conditions and observation instruments for communicative skills of kindergarten children are discussed and the use of digital media is also considered. Ines Bose, Prof. Dr., teaches and researches at the Institute for Music, Media and Speech Studies at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. Kati Hannken-Illjes, Prof. Dr., teaches and researches at the Institute for German Linguistics, Speech Science Group, at the Philipps University of Marburg. Stephanie Kurtenbach, Dr. phil., teaches and researches at the Institute for Music, Media and Speech Studies at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg.

Abstract

The goal of this Special Issue is to bring together state-of-the art articles on applied linguistics which reflect investigation carried out by researchers from different parts of the world. By bringing together papers from different perspectives, we hope to be able to gain a better understanding of the field. Hence, this Special Issue intends to address the study of language in its different dimensions and within the framework of multiple methodologies and formal accounts as used by researchers in the field. This Special Issue is dedicated to research in any area related to applied linguistics, including language acquisition and language learning; language teaching and curriculum design; language for specific purposes; psychology of language, child language and psycholinguistics; sociolinguistics; pragmatics; discourse analysis; corpus linguistics, computational linguistics and language engineering; lexicology and lexicography; and translation and interpretation.
