The Longitudinal Study of Advanced L2 Capacities (Second by Lourdes Ortega, Heidi Byrnes

By Lourdes Ortega, Heidi Byrnes

Researchers and educators frequently demand longitudinal study on language studying and educating. the current quantity explores the relationship among longitudinal research and complicated language capacities, under-researched components, and proposes an time table for destiny examine. 5 chapters probe theoretical and methodological reflections in regards to the longitudinal research of complex L2 capacities, by way of 8 chapters that record on empirical longitudinal investigations spanning descriptive, quasi-experimental, qualitative, and quantitative longitudinal methodologies. additionally, the co-editors supply a close creation to the amount and a coda bankruptcy within which they discover what it will take to layout systematic examine courses for the longitudinal research of complex L2 capacities. the students during this quantity jointly make the argument that moment language acquisition learn may be the richer, theoretically and empirically, if a trajectory towards advancedness is a part of its conceptualization correct from the start and, in opposite, that advancedness is a very fascinating acquisitional point at which to probe modern theories linked to the longitudinal research of language improvement. Acknowledging that advancedness is more and more very important in our multicultural societies and globalized global, the imperative query explored within the current assortment is: How does studying through the years evolve towards complicated capacities in a moment language?

Sample text

To our knowledge, this is the first time the connection between the two areas of “longitudinal study” and “advanced capacities” is made. In fact, the field has only recently begun to explore either theme, and both are currently underresearched. Thus, the collection itself is designed to prompt an exploration of the connection of the two themes that can set the agenda for future research in the area. To this end, we have gathered in this volume five chapters that probe theoretical and methodological reflections about the longitudinal study of advanced L2 capacities, followed by eight chapters that report on empirical longitudinal investigations of L2 learning.

Language and languages--Study and teaching, Second language acquisition. 0071 subject : Language and languages--Study and teaching, Second language acquisition. Page i The Longitudinal Study of Advanced L2 Capacities The present edited volume explores the connection between longitudinal study and advanced language capacities, two under-researched areas in investigations of language learning and teaching, and proposes an agenda for future research. Five chapters probe theoretical and methodological reflections about the longitudinal study of advanced L2 capacities, followed by eight chapters that report on empirical longitudinal investigations spanning descriptive, quasi-experimental, qualitative, and quantitative longitudinal methodologies.

Similarly, the meaning of ergehen can be more literal, as in ein Gesetz ergeht (“a law goes out = is issued/promulgated”), but it can also be more metaphorical, as in the expression jemandem gut/schlecht ergangen sein (“things went well or bad for someone”). In the beginning of the semester, the advanced (post-third-year) students investigated by Sprang gave no indication that they were aware of any of the subtle meanings contributed by the two prefixes, even though they were able to loosely guess, on the basis of context clues, the meaning of some of the prefixed verbs that appeared in classroom materials.
