Review Article. SLA Theory Building: "Letting All the Flowers Bloom!"
Lantolf, James P.
Language Learning, v46 n4 p713-49 Dec 1996
Presents a postmodernist critical analysis of the second language acquisition (SLA) theory-building literature as primarily represented in the writings of Beretta, Crookes, Eubank, Gregg, Long, and Schumann. Argues that there is no foundational reason to grant privileged status to the modernist view of SLA espoused by these scholars. (67 references) (Author/CK)
