Specialized Vocabulary Learning and Use in Theology
by Michael Lessard-Clouston
While second language acquisition (SLA) research has grown significantly, one research gap concerns natural SLA in contexts other than ESL/EFL classes. One field with large numbers of ESL/EFL students is theology, and this book addresses this area by describing an investigation into 1) the specialized vocabulary of an introductory course at a graduate school of theology in central Canada and 2) the learning and use of this theological vocabulary by both native and non-native English speaker participants. Using various data sources, the book details how native and non-native English speakers approached and succeeded in learning the technical vocabulary of their discipline over one semester and provides corpus analyses of a) theology lectures as lexical environments and b) participants’ written work in this context. This study delivers a systematic overview of issues in technical vocabulary and discusses implications for related theory, future research, and the learning and teaching of specialized vocabulary. The book, with samples of word lists and student writing, will therefore be of interest to theological students as well as ESL/EAP teachers and applied linguistics researchers.
