Payant, Caroline – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2020
Second language (L2) writing researchers have demonstrated that bilingual writers draw on their native language to fulfill task requirements.

Cobb, Tom; Horst, Marlise – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
The vocabulary research of the 1980s and 1990s brought a breath of fresh air into the language classroom. Teachers in many remote EFL locations had long suspected that vocabulary was their learners' main challenge, but there was little research evidence to confirm this or say what to do about it.

Derwing, Tracey M.; Thomson, Ronald I. – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
Tracey Derwing and Ron Thomson reflect on the growth of Canadian L2 pronunciation research from the early 1990s onward.
