Benati, Alessandro G. and John W. Schwieter 2022 Chapter 1. The legacy of Professor Michael H. Long and his influence in second language acquisitionSecond Language Acquisition Theory: The legacy of Professor Michael H. Long, Benati, Alessandro G. and John W. Schwieter (eds.), pp. 1–8
This chapter will provide a brief overview of the influence of Professor Michael H. Long in the field of second language acquisition whose work has shaped our understanding of many key concepts in the field. The chapter continues with a short synopsis of the contributions in this volume motivated… read more | Chapter
Metacognitive aspects of decision-making processes were investigated in eight professional translators who translated related and unrelated texts from L2 English into L1 Portuguese and also from L1 into L2. Retrospective protocols were recorded after each translation task. Verbal utterances were… read more | Article
Input Processing refers to the initial process by which learners connect grammatical forms with their meanings as well as how they interpret the roles of nouns in relationship to verbs. The pedagogical intervention derived from this theoretical framework, Processing Instruction (PI), has… read more | Chapter
Ferreira, Aline, Alexandra Gottardo, Christine Javier, John W. Schwieter and Fanli Jia 2016 Reading comprehension: The role of acculturation, language dominance, and socioeconomic status in cross-linguistic relationsThe Acquisition and Processing of Spanish and Portuguese Morphosyntax: Theoretical and experimental issues, Klassen, Rachel, Anahí Alba de la Fuente, Joanne Markle LaMontagne and Almudena Basanta y Romero-Valdespino (eds.), pp. 613–639
The role of first language (L1) skills in second language (L2) achievement is often investigated to assist learners in acquiring their L2. There are several factors that may influence potential relations among Spanish and English measures (e.g., age of L2 acquisition, social status, among others).… read more | Article
This study explores the effects of individual differences on the production of words when switching between a strong and significantly weaker language. Variables of interest included non-linguistic cognitive control, lexical robustness (i.e., the size and strength of the lexicon), and frequency of… read more | Article
This section presents introductory remarks and important issues at the forefront of studying the cognitive control of multiple languages. These themes are subsequently elaborated on and tested in the following chapters which present original empirical data and/or explore new directions and… read more | Article
This study investigates lexical and morpho-syntactic development in comprehension and production among university-level students who participated in a second language (L2) study abroad program. Prior to and at the conclusion of the short-term study abroad experience, English language learners of… read more | Article
Ferreira, Aline, John W. Schwieter and Daniel Gile 2015 The position of psycholinguistic and cognitive science in translation and interpreting: An introductionPsycholinguistic and Cognitive Inquiries into Translation and Interpreting, Ferreira, Aline and John W. Schwieter (eds.), pp. 3–16
This chapter presents recent developments in the cognitive underpinnings of bilingual speech production. Upon close observation of the theories explaining how speakers of non-native languages are able to select the language in which to speak and control cross-linguistic interference from non-target… read more | Article

Schwieter, John W. and Gretchen L. Sunderman 2011 Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 1:4, pp. 391–412
This study tests whether or not trilingual language learners rely on inhibitory control (IC) when accessing words during speech production. In particular, it investigates the extent to which second language (L2) and third language (L3) lexical robustness modulates such reliance. English language… read more | Article
Recent research on language production suggests that bilinguals shift from using inhibitory control mechanisms to a language-specific selective mechanism during development (Costa, Santesteban, & Ivanova, 2006). Costa et al. argue that the robustness of the L2 lexical representations may be… read more | Article
