Studying Processability Theory
It explores the way in which language processing mechanisms shape the course of language development. The core of the book is Pienemann's Processability Theory which spells out which second language forms are processable at which developmental stage. The theory is based on recent research into language processing and is formalised within Lexical-Functional Grammar. The predictions of the theory are applied to the second language development of English, German, Japanese and Swedish.
The theory is also tested in on-line experiments.
Studying Processability Theory
In addition, Processability Theory has major implications for interlanguage variation including task variation and age-related differences in language acquisition. Among the most important SLA theories recently discussed in Van Patten , no other can accommodate such a variety of phenomena or seems able to offer the basis for so many new directions. In these three decades, the whole field of SLA has grown exponentially. PT has paralleled this growth, and widened its scope in several directions.

Finally, the range of the original applications of PT to language testing and language teaching has also expanded over the years, involving several new ways of testing and teaching situations e. Di Biase ; Yamaguchi Ensuing publications in all these PT strands during such a long period of growth have had their own agendas and purposes.

Furthermore, not only PT itself but also its feeder disciplines have developed in new directions, crucially among them psycholinguistics for language production and theoretical linguistics for language knowledge. As a consequence, it is not surprising that readers unfamiliar with PT's history may at times be confused by differences in the presentation of the theory, its use of terminology, and reliance on its theoretical bases.
