Winner of the 2011 Kenneth W. Mildenberger Prize
Exploring fluency from multiple vantage points that together constitute a cognitive science perspective, this book examines research in second language acquisition and bilingualism that points to promising avenues for understanding and promoting second language fluency. Cognitive Bases of Second Language Fluency covers essential topics such as units of analysis for measuring fluency, the relation of second language fluency to general cognitive fluidity, social and motivational contributors to fluency, and neural correlates of fluency. The author provides clear and accessible summaries of foundational empirical work on speech production, automaticity, lexical access, and other issues of relevance to second language acquisition theory. Cognitive Bases of Second Language Fluency is a valuable reference for scholars in SLA, cognitive psychology, and language teaching, and it can also serve as an ideal textbook for advanced courses in these fields.
Norman Segalowitz is Professor of Psychology at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, and the Associate Director of the Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance. He has published widely on cognitive psychological issues in second language acquisition and functioning in adults.Review:
"This book is very important in redefining the terms in which L2 fluency should be conceptualized and what research questions can be usefully posed. To that extent, it will very naturally take its place among the required reading list of graduate students in applied and psycholinguistics. In addition, it keeps a very firm eye on the realities of how people actually learn second languages." - System
"This indispensable book's major contribution lies in its use of a multidisciplinary approach to establish and systemize the field of second language fluency... This book is a 'must have' for anyone working in the field...A pleasure to read."
- The Canadian Modern Language Review
