"A" Stands for Acquisition: A Response to Firth and Wagner.
Modern Language Journal, v81 n3 p307-12 Fall 1997
Focuses on some positions advanced by Firth and Wagner in a preceding article regarding research in second language acquisition (SLA). Argues that if the microanalytic tools of conversation analysis were incorporated into a language socialization approach to SLA, it would be possible to reconstruct links between second language discourse and the acquisition of different and obscure aspects of communication.
