Cognitive Individual Differences in Second Language Processing and Acquisition contains 14 chapters that focus on the role of cognitive IDs in L2 learning and processing. The book brings together theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of cognitive IDs, as well as empirical studies that investigate the mediating role of cognitive IDs in various linguistic domains. Chapters include contributions from researchers working within second language acquisition (SLA), psycholinguistics, and cognitive psychology, sharing a common interest in the application of cognitive IDs to their respective areas of study. The interdisciplinary understanding of cognitive IDs presented in this book makes the book of interest to a wide readership of graduate students, faculty members, and academic researchers in the fields of SLA, psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, and education.

“Research evidence of the extent to which cognitive abilities mediate L2 learning during experimental or classroom conditions of exposure is essential to proposals for SLA theory, and effective instruction. This exceptionally insightful book delivers such evidence, significantly advances our understanding of theory and pedagogy alike, and is a must-read, major contribution to the field of SLA.”
