Summary

This book presents a new solution to one of the major methodological problems of second language research, the reconstruction of learners' processes of language learning and language use. Based on recent developments in cognitive psychology, the contributors to the volume demonstrate how introspective methods - verbal reports by learners about thier thought processes - provide valuable information about central areas in second language research: cognitive comprehension, translation and test-taking.
