Not So Fast: Some Thoughts on Theory Culling, Relativism, Accepted Findings and the Heart and Soul of SLA.
Block, David
Applied Linguistics, v17 n1 p63-83 Mar 1996
Responds to claims regarding second-language acquisition (SLA) research. The claims refer to the existence of multiple theories in SLA research, relativism in the field and acceptability and testing of findings. The article argues that SLA is a process of exploration and speculation rather than one of discovery and proof and suggests that SLA is multidimensional in nature. (53 references) (Author/CK)
