In 2010, Alhawary published Arabic Second Language Acquisition of Morphosyntax, which provided empirical data on Arabic second language acquisition (SLA) strategies. This proposed book follows the volume, using data to delve into issues of input, transfer, and typology. Alhawary's book relies on Arabic as a second language (L2) data from speakers whose first languages (L1s) are Chinese and Russian and aims to answer the following questions: How do adult Arabic L2 learners come to know about the combinatorial properties of morphemes, words, phrases, and clauses? Do they develop L2 knowledge systematically or randomly? Can they acquire the same range of syntactic and morphological knowledge as native speakers and to what extent? What are the developmental stages or paths, if any, along which Arabic L2 learners progress? What is the role of the native language in learning Arabic a second language? To what extent can input exposure override or minimize the effect of the native language and at what proficiency level? What evidence do the present data provide on the role of a second language (on that of another) and posited claims about such a role? What are other factors that have a bearing on learning Arabic as a second language? Answers will help teachers of Arabic and linguists seeking to understand and develop better methods for teaching Arabic.

Second Language Learning and Language Teaching provides an introduction to the application of second language acquisition research to language teaching. Assuming no previous background in second language acquisition or language teaching methods, this text starts by introducing readers to the basic issues of second language acquisition research. It then examines how people learn particular aspects of the second language, such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and the writing system, and at the strategies they adopt in their learning and the differences between individuals. Final chapters look at second language learning in a broader context – the goals of language teaching and how teaching methods relate to SLA research. This newly updated fifth edition builds on the comprehensive scope of earlier editions while also addressing more recent developments in the field, particularly multilingual approaches to language teaching.

Whether we grow up with one, two, or several languages during our early years of life, many of us will learn a second, foreign, or heritage language in later years. The field of Second language acquisition (SLA, for short) investigates the human capacity to learn additional languages in late childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, after the first language --in the case of monolinguals-- or languages --in the case of bilinguals-- have already been acquired. Understanding Second Language Acquisition offers a wide-encompassing survey of this burgeoning field, its accumulated findings and proposed theories, its developed research paradigms, and its pending questions for the future. The book zooms in and out of universal, individual, and social forces, in each case evaluating the research findings that have been generated across diverse naturalistic and formal contexts for second language acquisition. It assumes no background in SLA and provides helpful chapter-by-chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading. Ideal as a textbook for students of applied linguistics, foreign language education, TESOL, and education, it is also recommended for students of linguistics, developmental psycholinguistics, psychology, and cognitive science.
