Some Problems with Falsification: An Illustration From SLA Research.
Schumann, John H.
Applied Linguistics, v14 n3 p295-306 Sep 1993
Explores the claim that successful second-language acquisition (SLA) is the result of social, psychological, and affective factors; the argument that this claim has been falsified is untenable. Exploration of behavioral, psychological, and biological constructs to generate new formulations is a more productive approach to SLA theory building than is falsification. (Contains 46 references.)
