Second-language acquisition is just a special case of more general learning and employs cognitive abilities used in non-linguistic tasks (Langacker, ).

A cognitive theory of learning sees second language acquisition as a conscious and reasoned thinking process, involving the deliberate use of learning strategies. Learning strategies are special ways of processing information that enhance comprehension, learning or retention of information. This explanation of language learning contrasts strongly with the behaviourist account of language.

Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, pages. ISBN: Two crucial issues for LSP practitioners are the relevance of linguistic theories to Second Language Acquisition (SLA), Second Language Teaching. The first part of the book introduces the basics of cognitive linguistic theory in a way that is geared toward second language teachers and researchers.

The second part of the book provides experimental evidence of the usefulness of applying cognitive linguistics to the teaching of English. Included is a thorough review of the existing. The Cognitive Linguistics paradigm has already shown its viability to analyze a wide array of linguistic phenomena.

This book establishes its relevance in the areas of second language acquisition and language pedagogy. Its intended public is composed of Cognitive Linguists, Second Language Acquisition specialists, as well as foreign language. The second part of the book provides experimental evidence of the usefulness of applying cognitive linguistics to the teaching of English.

Included is a thorough review of the existing literature on cognitive linguistic applications to teaching and cognitive linguistic-based experiments. A radically different view of the language system is found in a cognitive linguistic approach. Cognitive Linguistics (CL) is based on the assumption that meaning is embodied and attempts to explain facts about language in terms of other properties and mechanisms of the human mind and body.

This paper reports the results of a quasi-experimental effects-of-instruction study examining the efficacy of applying a Cognitive Linguistic (CL) approach to L2 learning of the semantics of English modals.

In spite of their frequency in typical input, modal verbs present L2 learners with difficulties, party due to their inherent complexity — modals typically have two divergent senses.

Language consists of constructions acquired through use, pair form with meaning, and encode different experiences of reality. Exploring how this knowledge is challenging second language learning the book examines how cognitive linguistic theory can propose new classroom methods, revive older ones, or underpin aspects of current practice.

Second language acquisition (SLA) and foreign language learning (FLL) research fields have seen an increasing number of theoretical and empirical studies focusing on cognitive linguistic insights. Littlemore () in "Applying Cognitive Linguistics to Second Language Learning and Teaching" states the fact that "unlike generative linguists, cognitive linguists argue that the cognitive Author: Jeannette Littlemore.

In this paper, I aim to make a comprehensive and critical summary of the cognitive linguistics (CL) literature on PVs with particular attention to its connection with usage-based approaches, especially in Second Language Acquisition (SLA), and to the concept of (meaning) motivation, which has proven to be useful in teaching.

This volume of the AILA Review focuses on the substantial contribution Cognitive Linguistics can make to language teaching. After almost three decades of empirical research into the motivated aspects of language, Cognitive Linguistic findings are gradually being applied to Second Language.

Applying Cognitive Linguistics to Second Language Learning and Teaching(1) One of the contributions that CL makes to second language learning and teaching is to suggest ways in which the relationships between grammatical expressions and their original lexical meanings can be made apparent in the classroom to enhance learning and.

Here the key lies in understanding how the target language cognitive system works, and how it differs from the learner's first language system.5/5(3). Because of these personal biases, my discussion of L2 learning and teaching will be oriented to the most typical language-learning situation in the UK, where a monoglot English child is learning a foreign language such as French in school.

I am of course aware that there are many other L2-learning situations, and I hope that some. concerns itself with topics such as problem-solving, language, learning, memory, etc.
