Cognitive Science and Second Language Acquisition Series

Series Editor: Peter Robinson

The Cognitive Science and Second Language Acquisition Series is designed to provide systematic and accessible coverage of the links between basic concepts and findings in cognitive science and second language acquisition (SLA). Titles in the series summarize issues and research in areas of cognitive science which have relevance to SLA, and when read in combination, provide a comprehensive overview of the conceptual and methodological intersects between these two fields. Books in the series are organized under the subfields of cognitive science (representational, functional, developmental, and differential cognitive psychology), and will cover such topics as speech production, fluency, gestures, lexical processing, sentence processing, connectionism, social cognition, working memory, and more.

Research findings and theoretical constructs from cognitive science have become increasingly influential in SLA research in recent years. The Cognitive Science and Second Language Acquisition Series is a valuable reference for scholars who want to increase their knowledge of theoretical and operational definitions in cognitive science, and their applications to SLA. Its titles are ideal for graduate students and researchers in SLA, applied linguistics, cognitive psychology, educational psychology, and language education, and can also serve as textbooks for advanced courses in these fields.
