Second language vocabulary acquisition : a rationale for pedagogy by James Coady( Book )

32 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among ordinary language learners, the acquisition of vocabulary has long been felt to be a crucial component of learning a foreign language. Second Language Vocabularly Acquisition has the goal of comparing the effectiveness of the direct learning of vocabulary (through memorization) and the indirect learning of vocabulary (through context); it encourages an appropriate balance between direct and indirect teaching of vocabulary in second language classrooms. The authors of these original articles present theoretical background, empirical research, and case studies focusing on a variety of modes of vocabulary acquisition. There is also an exploration of relevant pedagogical issues, including a description of practical strategies and techniques for teaching vocabulary
The new century handbook by Christine A Hult( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most successful new handbook published in over a decade, The New Century Handbook is the only comprehensive college handbook to be developed with the assumption that students are writing using word processors and are using the Internet as a fundamental source for their research writing. It is the first college handbook to thoroughly integrate an awareness of and instruction on the benefits of computer technology to the writing and research processes. The handbook offers, first and foremost however, a thorough treatment of the writing process, the research process, and grammar, mechanics, and punctuation. The text emphasizes that effective writing, with or without computers, is based on sound rhetorical principles. The authors of the text are major scholars in all of the topic areas covered in the handbook, giving The Century Handbook an authority that is unparalleled among major college handbooks

Genre knowledge in disciplinary communication : cognition, culture, power by Carol Berkenkotter( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on 10 years of research in contexts as diverse as a doctoral program in rhetoric and composition and a scientist's peer review correspondence, this book develops a dynamic, activity-based theory of genre. Disciplinary genres, the authors propose, are constituted by evolving, communal, historically sedimented practices of "insiders" responsive to the dynamics of (re)current rhetorical situations. To support their unique perspective, Berkenkotter and Huckin draw on empirical findings from both micro- and macrolevel investigations including case studies of individual writers in action and large-corpus analyses of evolving genre features. The research methods and the theoretical framework presented should raise provocative questions for scholars, researchers, and teachers in rhetorical studies, communication, sociology, applied linguistics, education, and other fields interested in disciplinary communication
Second language reading and vocabulary learning by Thomas N Huckin( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reading ability and vocabulary knowledge are two of the most important components of performance in a second language, especially in academic settings. Each depend on the other, as vocabulary knowledge is the single most important factor in reading comprehension, while reading is the single most important means by which intermediate and advanced learners acquire new words. This symbiotic relationship is the subject of this volume. The authors argue that building vocabulary through reading is a fruitful but complex activity that needs better understanding and more careful guidance. This book is unique in its emphases on original research. Eight of the 14 chapters are empirical studies published for the first time, including classroom-based case studies, experimental research, and think-aloud protocol analysis. In every chapter, consideration is given to the pedagogical implications and possible applications of the research findings. Lengthy editorial comments at the end of each chapter reinforce this practical concern

Surprise value in scientific discourse by Thomas N Huckin( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of journal articles from physics and molecular biology carried out with the help of six specialists in those disciplines reveals that scientists read journal articles by searching for the most newsworthy information, a behavior similar to that of newspaper readers. For this reason the scientific journal article is gradually taking on text features that promote surprise value, conventions analogous to those of news reports. Titles have become more informative, section headings and subheadings are more frequent, abstracts (which enable writers to foreground their most important claims) are becoming standard, visual aids are more rhetorically focused and attention-getting, introductions more frequently contain results, and methodology sections are de-emphasized, with background information often published in a separate genre--the review article. To meet the scientific community's imperatives of factuality and personal credibility, such fast-paced surprise-value oriented modifications of the traditional layout are offset by the discussion section. Here the writer restates the results, redescribes the gap in knowledge filled, compares findings with earlier results in a selective literature review, proposes implications for larger issues, and makes acknowledgements. Thus situating his novel findings within the body of knowledge previously accepted, the scientist reasserts his membership in the scientific discourse community. Helping students see such form-function correlations of discourse conventions is one way to "demystify" academic discourse. (Jg)
