Rationality and Its Discontents in SLA.
Gregg, Kevin R.; Long, Michael; Jordan, Geoffrey; Beretta, Alan
Applied Linguistics, v18 n4 p538-58 Dec 1997
In 1993, "Applied Linguistics" published an issue on theory construction in second-language acquisition, including papers by Beretta and Crookes, Gregg, and Long. The article argues that these papers and the rationalist understanding of scientific research exemplified in them, have become the object of misguided critiques, including Block (1996). The article replies to these criticisms. (41 references) (Author/CK)
