Terminology

Terminology

  • Second language acquisition

  • Foreign language acquisition

  • Acquisition of additional languages

  • Bilingual language acquisition


Big questions

Big questions

  • What are L2 grammars like? What is the nature of interlanguage grammars?

  • How are L2 grammars acquired? How do they develop?

  • How are L2 knowledge put to use?


Approaches to sla research

Approaches to SLA research

  • Sociolinguistic

  • Linguistic

  • Psycholinguistic


Linguistic approaches

Linguistic approaches

  • Generativist

  • Emergentist (usage-based)

  • Functionalist


L2 grammar

L2 grammar

The focus of this course will be on the study of L2 grammars (a.k.a. Interlanguage grammars or ILGs, after the term coined by Selinker)


The nature of ilgs

The nature of ILGs

Exercise


Universal grammar ug

Universal Grammar (UG)

Many linguists claim that there is a great deal in common among the grammars of the world’s languages. Most advocates of this position believe that the commonalities exist because linguistic structure is largely determined by human biology.

The term ‘universal grammar’ is used to mean three subtly different things:

i.what is common to the world’s languages

ii.linguists’ representations of these commonalities

iii.the biological structures that are claimed to underlie the common features

Sag et al. (2003: 570)


Evidence for ug in l1a

Evidence for UG in L1A

L1A is:

  • Quick

  • Effortless

  • Uniform across stages of acquisition

  • Robust in terms of noisy/variable input

  • It shows equipotentiality across learners


Evidence for ug in sla

Evidence for UG in SLA?

We will consider the evidence in the next module
