The function of “A dictionary of language acquisition: A comprehensive overview of key terms in first and second language acquisition” is to collect and synthesize the knowledge base that is already well accepted and that has been well researched. Thus, it is a reference guide which offers an authoritative and encyclopedic survey of key terms and concepts in the areas of language acquisition and development. The volume is intended as a resource to elucidate various concepts, issues, approaches, models, and theories of language acquisition in an efficient and accessible style. This book makes use of approximately 1000 alphabetical entries with cross references where necessary. This volume is designed to appeal to undergraduate and graduate students, teachers, lecturers, practitioners, researchers, consultants, and consumers of information across the field of both first and second language acquisition.

This study examined the effects of differing degrees of bilingualism on the nonverbal problemsolving abilities of children in grade 3. Three linguistic groups were compared on problem-solving tasks designed to measure control of attention or analysis of knowledge, processes previously shown to develop differently in monolingual and bilingual children solving linguistic problems (Bialystok, 1988). In this study, an English-speaking monolingual group was compared with a FrenchEnglish bilinguals showed better performance on the non-linguistic tasks requiring control of attention than both the partial bilingual group and the monolingual group. There were no differences found between the groups on the non-linguistic task requiring analysis of representational structures. These results indicate that balanced bilinguals carry over their linguistic advantage in control of attention into the non-linguistic domain.
Child reading, adult reading, every day reading of high-brow fiction, even music play crucial roles in vocabulary development. Reading also helps overcome differences due to social differences, says the report. Excellent read! Stephen Krashen will speak in Paris on 14-16 November at the TESOL France Annual Colloquium.

Dr. Stephen Krashen talks about how we acquire languages. We acquire languages by understanding messages.
Csilla Jaray-Benn's insight:
Stephen Krashen defines "comprehensible input".
"We acquire language in only one way: when we understand messages (...) the only thing that works, the only thing that counts is giving people messages they understand that we now call comprehensible input."
Stephen Krashen is going to speak in Paris at the TESOL France annual colloquium on 14-16 November at Telecom ParisTech. More information at www.tesol-france.org
