What Is Second Language Acquisition and What Is It Doing in this Department?
VanPatten, Bill
ADFL Bulletin, v30 n3 p49-53 Spr 1999
Concerned about the inexact terminology used in job descriptions and in documents connected with promotion and tenure, this article defines second-language acquisition as a subfield of applied linguistics and compares it to other fields with which it is often confused. Misunderstandings about SLA do not allow it the credit it deserves as a research endeavor. (Author/VWL)
