2022. Chapter 2. Taking the Long view: A bibliometric analysis. Second Language Acquisition Theory: The legacy of Professor Michael H. Long, Benati, Alessandro G. and John W. Schwieter (eds.), pp. 9–28
By any definition, Michael Long was a giant in the field of second language acquisition (SLA). He was one of the very few who could truly wed language learning and language teaching which he did in a seamless fashion. His impact is far-reaching and envelops a number of different areas as we will… read more | Chapter
On learner characteristics and why we should model them as latent variables. International Journal of Learner Corpus Research 8:2, pp. 237–2602022.
Learner corpus research has a strong tradition of collecting metadata. However, while we tend to collect rich descriptive information about learners on directly measurable variables such as age, year of study, and time spent abroad, we frequently do not know much about learner characteristics… read more | Article
Language learning grit, achievement, and anxiety among L2 and L3 learners in Russia. ITL - International Journal of Applied Linguistics 172:2, pp. 161–1982021.
Although most research into grit – an individual difference that encompasses perseverance and passion for achieving long-term goals – has taken a domain-general perspective (e.g., Duckworth et al., 2007), emerging interest in a domain-specific approach to grit (e.g., Clark & Malecki, 2019) provides… read more | Article
Inter-rater reliability in Learner Corpus Research: Insights from a collaborative study on adverb placement. International Journal of Learner Corpus Research 6:2, pp. 237–2512020.
In Learner Corpus Research (LCR), a common source of errors stems from manual coding and annotation of linguistic features. To estimate the amount of error present in a coded dataset, coefficients of inter-rater reliability are used. However, despite the importance of reliability and internal… read more | Article
Chapter 5. Towards achieving work-life balance in academia: Comments and personal essays from six applied linguists. Professional Development in Applied Linguistics: A guide to success for graduate students and early career faculty, Plonsky, Luke (ed.), pp. 49–642020.
The competing demands of teaching, research, and service seem to never end. Consequently, as academics, we often find ourselves feeling unable to realize our professional goals while also maintaining a life outside of work. Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all way to achieve or… read more | Chapter
Chapter 1. On the state of professional development in applied linguistics. Professional Development in Applied Linguistics: A guide to success for graduate students and early career faculty, Plonsky, Luke (ed.), pp. 1–62020.
Conclusion: Data, open science, and methodological reform in second language acquisition research. Critical Reflections on Data in Second Language Acquisition, Gudmestad, Aarnes and Amanda Edmonds (eds.), pp. 219–2282018.
The development of statistical literacy in applied linguistics graduate students. ITL - International Journal of Applied Linguistics 168:1, pp. 4–322017.
Statistics play an important role in analyzing data in applied linguistics research. Given the increase over time in the field’s reliance on quantitative analysis (Brown, 2004; Gass, 2009), statistical literacy is critical for both producers and consumers of L2 research. Although there has been… read more | Article
Chapter 13. Look who’s interacting: A scoping review of research involving non-teacher/non-peer interlocutors. Expanding Individual Difference Research in the Interaction Approach: Investigating learners, instructors, and other interlocutors, Gurzynski-Weiss, Laura (ed.), pp. 305–3242017.
Despite the presence of non-teacher/non-peer learner interlocutors in primary (e.g., Gass and Varonis, 1985; M. H. Long, 1983; Varonis & Gass, 1985a, 1985b) and meta-analytic (Li, 2010) studies, and in interactionist theory and review articles (M. H. Long, 1996; Mackey & Goo, 2007), the individual… read more | Chapter
Quantitative research methods and study quality in learner corpus research. International Journal of Learner Corpus Research 3:1, pp. 61–942017.
This study aims to provide the first empirical assessment of quantitative research methods and study quality in learner corpus research. We systematically review quantitative primary studies referenced in the Learner Corpus Bibliography (LCB), a representative bibliography of learner corpus… read more | Article
Focus on form and vocabulary acquisition in the Spanish L2 classroom. Language, Interaction and Acquisition 4:1, pp. 1–242013.
This study examined lexical development from an interactionist perspective. More specifically, we investigated student gains in seven specific vocabulary words as a function of their frequency of occurrence and the type and amount of focus on form episodes related to them. Pretests and posttests… read more | Article
