Experimental Research Methods in Language Learning
Language: en
Pages: 368
Authors: Aek Phakiti
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-12-18 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Language learning research aims to describe and fully explain how and why language learning takes place, but can fall short of its stated purpose. Systematic, rigorous research is needed if the growing field of language learning is to progress methodically. This book demonstrates and fully explains such a methodology. Given that research in language acquisition yields practical pedagogical implications, it is crucial that it is rigorous and accurate. This book offers a quantitative research methodology that relies on statistical analysis in order to make inferences and conclusions about language learning. Experimental research aims to understand differences between or within groups of learners under manipulated environments. It requires strict control of conditions, enabling interpretations with a low factor of error. Aek Phakiti provides step-by-step guidelines and underlying principles, epistemology and methodology, in a book that is essential for advanced students of language acquisition and language and education.

Current Perspectives in Second Language Vocabulary Research

Pages: 180
Authors: David Hirsh
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2012 - Publisher: Peter Lang Pub Incorporated
Reflecting growth in research interest in second language vocabulary over the past 30 years, this edited volume explores the current themes and possible future directions in second language vocabulary research. The collection brings together review papers and quantitative studies, and considers vocabulary in the contexts of teaching, learning and assessment. Key themes explored in the volume include multidimensionality of vocabulary knowledge, the nature of word learnability, the interface between receptive vocabulary knowledge and productive vocabulary use, the partial-to-precise continuum of vocabulary knowledge, conditions favouring vocabulary learning and use, and the use of corpora to develop word lists to inform second language teaching. The themes presented in this volume reflect current thinking and research avenues at the interface between research enquiry and second language teaching practice.
Endangered Languages, Knowledge Systems and Belief Systems

Many of the world's 7000 documented language groups are endangered due to falling rates of language and culture transmission from one generation to the next. Some endangered language groups have been the focus of efforts to reverse patterns of linguistic and cultural loss, with variable success. This book presents case studies of endangered language groups from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Pacific (including <I>Bisu, Iban, Iquito, Quechua, Wawa, Yi and sign languages) and of their associated knowledge and belief systems, to highlight the importance of preserving linguistic and cultural diversity. Issues of identity and pride emerge within the book, alongside discussion of language and culture policy.
Academic Vocabulary in Context

Pages: 217
Authors: David Hirsh
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2010 - Publisher: Peter Lang
Academic texts present subject-specific ideas within a subject-independent framework. This book accounts for the presence of academic words in academic writing by exploring recurring patterns of function in texts representing different subject areas. The book presents a framework which describes academic word use at the ideational, textual and interpersonal levels. Functional categories are presented and illustrated which explain the role of academic words alongside general purpose and technical terms. The author examines biomedical research articles, and journal articles from arts, commerce and law. A comparable analysis focuses on university textbook chapters. Case studies investigate patterns of functionality within the main sections of research articles, compare word use in academic and non-academic texts reporting on the same research, and explore the carrier word function of academic vocabulary. The study concludes by looking at historical and contemporary processes which have shaped the presence of academic vocabulary in the English lexicon.
Grounded theory

Type: BOOK - Published: 2010 - Publisher:
Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.

Mit der Verfügbarkeit immer größerer und vielfältigerer Korpora wird im Übergang zum 21. Jahrhundert in der Lexikonforschung ein neues Kapitel aufgeschlagen. Der korpuslinguistische Zugang zum Lexikon hat die Lexikografie mit einer neuen empirischen Basis versehen und die klassische Abgrenzung zwischen Lexikon und Grammatik wird in sprachtheoretischen Debatten zunehmend in Frage gestellt. Der vorliegende Band nimmt eine Positionsbestimmung dieser Entwicklungen vor. Er setzt ein mit der Diskussion zur Rolle des Lexikons im Sprachsystem. Im zweiten Teil, „Kookkurrenz und Konstruktion“, geht es um Phänomene, die über die Ebene des einzelnen Wortes hinausgehen und seit einiger Zeit immer größeres Interesse auf sich ziehen. Mentale Prozesse und Repräsentationen des Lexikons bilden den Fokus im Teil „Kognition und Semantik“. Mit „Komplexität und Dynamik“ werden im vierten Teil zwei weitere zentrale Begriffe der aktuellen linguistischen Diskussion über das Lexikon thematisiert, bevor abschließend auch auf die Implikationen für Wortschatzforschung und Lexikografie eingegangen wird.
