As the field of second language acquisition (SLA) embraces a greater theoretical and methodological inclusiveness, this series invites research that draws on theories of linguistics, learning, and language use that are relatively new to the field (including but not limited to Vygotskian sociocultural theory, situated learning, language socialization, usage-based linguistics or construction grammars, and ethnomethodological conversation analysis). Books in the series will also mine new types of data enabled by technological advances in order to build theory. Routledge Advances in Second Language Studies focuses on issues that will be of interest in several academic disciplinary areas including linguistics, languages, and education.
