Acronyms, Initialisms and Abbreviations in Native and Second Language Acquisition.
Thurston, Charles
A list of 1,036 terms and definitions used in native and second language acquisition and instruction, linguistics, language testing, and bicultural-multicultural education, including identical items with different meanings, is presented. The terms were derived from manual searches of the ERIC Clearinghouse on Languages and Linguistics and ERIC Clearinghouse on Urban Education sections of the bibliographic journals "Current Index to Journals in Education" and "Resources in Education" through September 1984; "Language Teaching"; some portions of "Language and Language Behavior Abstracts"; and bibliographies and texts in linguistics, English as a second language, and varieties of English. One objective of the listing is to indicate the problem of lack of standardization of terminology. Acronyms of journal titles, monographs, academic and professional associations, and research centers are excluded. (MSE)
