Generative second language acquisition and language teaching
Advancing the dialogue
Though language teaching concerns lie outside the core aim of generative second language acquisition (GenSLA) research, consideration of how GenSLA findings might be useful for the language classroom has nonetheless been a consistent sub-theme within Roumyana Slabakova’s work. This paper reports on a recent body of “applied GenSLA” research and teacher-researcher networking activities that address this theme by explicitly aiming to investigate applications of GenSLA research in a language teaching context. The applied GenSLA work is then discussed in the broader context of engagement between language teachers and SLA research generally (E. Marsden & Kasprowicz 2017; Nassaji, 2012), and concludes with proposals for how applied GenSLA can contribute towards advancing the teacher-researcher dialogue.
Keywords: applied second language acquisition research, research-practice interface, generative SLA, grammar teaching, classroom language learning
