Table of Contents
“The cognitive turn in second language acquisition research in the 1970s triggered a wealth of theoretically informed empirical studies. Few researchers had as profound an impact on these developments over the subsequent 40 years as Michael H. Long. It is gratifying to see that the studies in this volume live up to the depth and breadth of Mike’s own research and honour his memory beautifully.”
“A rich and often moving collection of tributes to Mike Long: for lucky ones, as a friend, or as a supervisor, co-researcher or author, not forgetting his work as editor - all sui generis; for all, one of the pre-eminent voices and influences on the development of applied linguistics. This volume, which sometimes reads like a written colloquium, brings together a variety of styles, tones and topics by distinguished scholars, from a welcome range of generations of applied linguists. Together the work they report offers a memorable reflection on Mike Long, the person and the scholar.”
“This volume represents the collective efforts of outstanding scholars with expertise in key topics in SLA, including age, TBLT, transfer, incidental learning, and context of acquisition. The collection presents new evidence masterfully couched within a long-term perspective on the issues; it is a true testament to Mike Long’s extraordinary academic prowess and to his long-lasting influence in the field.”
