2022. A comparison of automated and manual analyses of syntactic complexity in L2 English writing. International Journal of Corpus Linguistics: Online-First Articles
Automated tools for syntactic complexity measurement are increasingly used for analyzing various kinds of second language corpora, even though these tools were originally developed and tested for texts produced by advanced learners. This study investigates the reliability of automated complexity… read more | Article
Chapter 9. A critical appraisal of the CDST approach to investigating linguistic complexity in L2 writing development. Complex Dynamic Systems Theory and L2 Writing Development, Fogal, Gary G. and Marjolijn H. Verspoor (eds.), pp. 207–2382020.
This chapter aims to help the complex dynamic systems theory (CDST) approach to second language acquisition reach its full potential by critically appraising its current applications to complexity in L2 writing development. To further this end, we first review five representative empirical… read more | Chapter
Defining and operationalising L2 complexity. Dimensions of L2 Performance and Proficiency: Complexity, Accuracy and Fluency in SLA, Housen, Alex, Folkert Kuiken and Ineke Vedder (eds.), pp. 21–462012.
This chapter takes a critical look at complexity in L2 research. We demonstrate several problems in the L2 literature in terms of how complexity has been defined and operationalised as a construct. In the first part of the chapter we try to unravel its highly complex, multidimensional nature by… read more | Article
De Schriftelijke Taalvaardigheid van Franstalige en Nederlandstalige Leerlingen uit het Nederlandstalig Onderwijs in Brussel. Toegepaste Taalwetenschap in Artikelen 79, pp. 75–852008.
