Second Language Acquisition of Spoken and Written English: Acquiring the Skeptron.
Angelil-Carter, Shelley
TESOL Quarterly, v31 n2 p263-87 Sum 1997
Argues that acquisition of English-as-a-Second-Language research must take into account social context and power relations in order to explain language learning processes. Uses interview data and writing samples to demonstrate how a student in South Africa is influenced in his written discourse in English by his power relations and experience as a political prisoner.
