Baten, Kristof and Jörg-U. Keßler 2019 Chapter 1. Research timeline. The role of instruction: Teachability and processabilityTeachability and Learnability across Languages, Arntzen, Ragnar, Gisela Håkansson, Arnstein Hjelde and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 9–26
This chapter presents an overview of studies that have dealt with the role of instruction, and more particularly, its possible effect on altering the route of second language acquisition (SLA). In SLA, some have argued that the effects of instruction are limited, in that instruction will promote… read more | Chapter
In this paper, we outline a solution to the problem that teachers for students in heterogeneous EFL classrooms need to provide lessons that enable language acquisition at different levels (here: stages of the PT Hierarchy). Therefore, we describe a learner- and learning-centred application of… read more | Article
Pienemann, Manfred, Anke Lenzing and Jörg-U. Keßler 2016 Testing the Developmentally Moderated Transfer Hypothesis: The initial state and the role of the L2 in L3 acquisition*Developing, Modelling and Assessing Second Languages, Keßler, Jörg-U., Anke Lenzing and Mathias Liebner (eds.), pp. 79–98
This paper focuses on one specific aspect of the Developmentally Moderated Transfer Hypothesis (Pienemann et al. 2005), namely the role of the L2 in L3 acquisition. The research presented in this paper was prompted by the L2 transfer hypothesis put forward by Bohnacker (2006) and Bardel and Falk… read more | Article
Keßler, Jörg-U. and Götz Schwab 2015 Chapter 9. PT meets CA: Second Language Research at the CrossroadsTheoretical and Methodological Developments in Processability Theory, Baten, Kristof, Aafke Buyl, Katja Lochtman and Mieke Van Herreweghe (eds.), pp. 175–204
In this chapter we combine two distinct perspectives on second language research and foreign language learning. On the one hand we make use of the socio-interactional perspective of Conversation Analysis for Second Language Acquisition (CA for SLA) (Schwab 2011), and on the other hand we apply the… read more | Article
Keßler, Jörg-U. and Manfred Pienemann 2011 Research methodology: How do we know about developmental schedules?Studying Processability Theory: An Introductory Textbook, Pienemann, Manfred and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 83–96
PT-based studies make testable claims about language acquisition. Any study of language acquisition that makes testable claims needs to be based on observations of the acquisition process. One major method of observation (used both in research on child language as well as second language… read more | Article
Keßler, Jörg-U. and Mathias Liebner 2011 Diagnosing L2 development: Rapid ProfileStudying Processability Theory: An Introductory Textbook, Pienemann, Manfred and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 131–147
This chapter introduces one of the key applications of Processability Theory. Diagnosing L2 development is equally important for SLA research and for language teaching. We will provide an overview of profile analyses and describe Rapid Profile, a diagnostic tool based on PT, offers a quick, valid… read more | Article
Keßler, Jörg-U., Mathias Liebner and Fethi Mansouri 2011 TeachingStudying Processability Theory: An Introductory Textbook, Pienemann, Manfred and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 148–155
In this chapter one of the key components of Processability Theory for classroom applications is introduced: Teaching a foreign language is constrained by the PT hierarchy. This has been known as the “Teachability Hypothesis” introduced by Pienemann in 1984. This chapter summarizes the Teachability… read more | Article
