By presenting a balanced treatment that examines all sides of the issues, Hoff helps readers understand different theoretical points of view-- and the research processes that have lead theorists to their findings. After an overview and history of the field, Hoff thoroughly covers the biological bases of language development and the core topics of phonological, lexical, and syntactic development. She also provides in-depth discussions of the communicative foundations of language, the development of communicative competence, language development in special populations, childhood bilingualism, and language development in the school years.

The Metalinguistic Dimension In Instructed Second Language Learning

The metalinguistic dimension refers to the way in which learners bring to bear knowledge about language into their learning of a second language, the "L2". This book brings together new research on the metalinguistic dimension, given its increasing importance in the study of L2 acquisition. In applied linguistics it is widely accepted that L2 learners develop and use knowledge about language when engaging with the challenging task of acquiring a new language; this applies to both children and adults. It is definitions of the metalinguistic dimension that vary, and findings regarding its role in L2 learning are not necessarily homogenous or compatible. The scope exists for further, empirical, detailed research. This book explores the nature, development and role of the metalinguistic dimension and will be essential reading for all SLA scholars and those working in language and education.

Language Strategies For Trilingual Families

This book aims to enable parents in trilingual families to consider possible language strategies on the basis of analysing their individual circumstances. It includes a tool for diagnostic self-analysis that will help each reader to identify their situation and learn how parents in similar situations have approached the task of supporting their children’s use of languages. Based on a unique survey of parents in trilingual families in two European countries, the book highlights the challenges that trilingual families face when living in mainly monolingual societies. It takes into account the recent emergence of a 'New Trilingualism' among educated parents who find themselves in trilingual families because of global trends in migration and the recent expansion of the EU.

Published in cooperation with the Speech Communication Association Division on International and Intercultural Communication. A diverse multicultural team of experts assembled for this compelling volume voice the importance of understanding language, communication, and culture. They discuss the critical role of language usage through communication to assert and negotiate different facets of identity, and relate the different levels and functions of language usage to the collective life of a culture. Each author discusses the interlinkage between language and communication based on his or her points of research interest and orientation. Topics addressed include the importance of studying the relationships between language and society; the relationship between language and identities--personal identity, social role identity, and cultural/ethnolinguistic identity; and the multiple functions and meanings of language and communication in relationship to culture. Taken together, the three approaches in this volume reflect the current trends and directions of multidisciplinary nature of studying language, communication and culture. Language, Communication, and Culture reflects the current ideas and approaches of scholars working in the disciplines of psychology, linguistics, sociolinguistics, intergroup relations, and communication. It will appeal to scholars, researchers, and students who are intrigued and enticed by the fascinating, multifaceted aspects of language. "The book makes a unique contribution to the literature in that it includes a balance of theoretical discussion of issues such as language development, use, and function, as well as a variety of analytical approaches and intergroup data-based studies. . . .Language, Communication and Culture is a book which extends our knowledge about the structures, functions, and implications of language use across cultures. Ting-Toomey and Korzenny have provided a worthwhile sourcebook for those of us researching culture, and a particularly useful book for graduate level or advanced undergraduate coursework in language and/or culture." --International Journal of Intercultural Relations "This is an important volume and will prove invaluable to gamers interested in the communication and the cultural aspects of simulation." --Simulation & Gaming "This collection . . . is a well-organized presentation of current research on the relationships among intercultural communication processes from differing perspectives." --The Modern Language Journal "This book will interest academic specialists in language and communication and their graduate students." --Academic Library Book Review "On the whole, the papers are coherent and well integrated into the research literature." --Canadian Journal of Communication "The contributors'arguments are diverse but interlinked and provide a critical perspective on the theme of language and communication in cross-cultural contexts. . . . Adds to several important studies about the language/culture nexus and favors the current climate of cultural pluralism and multilingualism to promote liberal ethnic identity." --Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology
