Summary

Five papers in diverse areas of linguistics in education are presented. "Second Language Learning through Interaction: Multiple Perspectives" (Teresa Pica) looks at the variety of theoretical approaches to interaction in second language learning, and how an interactionist perspective lends weight to a number of theories. "Acquaintance or Fiancee: Pragmatic Differences in Requests between Japanese and Americans" (Mitsuo Kubota) contrasts culture-based speech styles and strategies for making requests. In "Investigating the Structure of Discourse Completion Tests" (Manka Varghese, Kristine Billmyer), the effect of systematic modification to discourse completion tests' situational prompts on learners' response is investigated. "Dictogloss: Is It an Effective Language Learning Task?" (Toshiyo Nabei) examines learners' interaction in one stage of dictogloss testing and how it may affect second language learning. "ESL and Parental Empowerment" (Daryl Gordon) examines the role of language in the acculturation process in immigrant and refugee families and draws implications regarding how the English-as-a-Second-Language class functions to empower parents.
