Philosophical Investigations for Applied Linguistics: Reading list to accompany Block's "Social Turn" in SLA (2003)

Philosophical Investigations for Applied Linguistics: Reading list to accompany Block's "Social Turn" in SLA (2003) | TELT | Scoop.it

@yosukeyanase This post is to help students in my Intensive Course "Language and Society" (Aug 27 - 30, 2012) who will read the following book. As I believe that Abstracts of academic papers belong to the public domain of the web, I paste abstracts of the papers that are cited in or related to the arguments in the book.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Great list from the "paradigm wars" and beyond.  If anyone has Gregg's 1990 Applied Linguistics paper on the variable competence model and why it isn't (wonder what line he's going to take here, huh?) I'd love a look to situate that great quote about "toilers in the variable vineyards."

Shona Whyte:

 

483 accents of English - audio files for the same text, male and female speakers from a variety of English-speaking countries plus non-natives.

 

Great for phonetics/phonology practice, or just demonstrating phonological variation to dispel the myth that there's one "standard" pronunciation.
