Something to think about when evaluating ESL/EFL text... 🤔 Variability/robustness of input and frequency

Least variable (1 form to 1 discourse meaning) + high frequency = high robustness
More variable (1 form to multiple discourse meaning) + low frequency = low robustness

Studies in Applied Linguistics & TESOL (SALT) is hosting an
Interdisciplinary Working Session on Computer-Mediated Communication at our next REAL Doc Zoom & Learn with Farah Akbar

WHEN: Dec 11 (Fri) 10 – 11am (EST)

Please register at: https://tinyurl.com/zoomandlearn

Title: Interactional feedback in text and voice-based synchronous CMC

Description: Farah’s dissertation explores the nature and effects of interactional feedback between native and non-native speakers (NS-NNS) of English in text and voice-based synchronous computer-mediated communication. She will lead a data session on data collected from the naturalistic interactions of 10 NS-NNS dyads. The effectiveness of NS interactional feedback on NNS language production specific to modes of interaction will be discussed.

Bio: Farah Akbar is a doctoral candidate in Applied Linguistics at Teachers College, Columbia University, specializing in second language acquisition (SLA). Her research interests include interactional feedback, technology-mediated language teaching and learning, and teacher education.

An Interdisciplinary Working Session on Classroom Discourse by Carol Lo!

Carol’s dissertation explores how the notion of 'understanding' can be studied from an interactional, emic perspective. The question of how teachers and L2 learners address and manage issues of understanding in the classroom will be pursued. She will lead a data session on data collected from a beginner and an intermediate level ESL class.

Register in advance for this meeting:

Carol Lo is a doctoral candidate in Applied Linguistics at Teachers College, Columbia University. Her research interests include pedagogical interaction, cross-cultural interaction, and the use of discourse markers in interaction. In particular, she pursues the question of how participants in the adult ESL classroom manage understanding of the subject matter and understanding among themselves. She has received Top Student Paper Award from the Language and Social Interaction Division of National Communication Association (NCA).

On English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) What's the communication failure in the second phone call in this video between a machine programmed, I imagine, with native speaker norms of the language and what ELF proponents would call an ELF user? Who is to "blame" for the breakdown in communication? And would the chance for successful communication have been better if the machine had been programmed to mimic an ELF user? Would the chance for successful communication have been better if the ELF user was seen as using interlanguage, and therefore in need of further training in native speaker norms of the language?
