Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Linguistics
  • Social science
  • Grammar

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Grammar, Language education and Comprehension approach. As part of his studies on Linguistics, Rod Ellis often connects relevant areas like Cognitive psychology. His Second-language acquisition study combines topics in areas such as Developmental linguistics, Context, Language acquisition, Language transfer and Corrective feedback.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Linguistic universal and Interlanguage. His Language education study which covers Applied linguistics that intersects with Pedagogy, Teaching method, Focus and Pragmatics. His Comprehension approach study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Language assessment.

His most cited work include:

  • The Study of Second Language Acquisition (3663 citations)
  • Task-based Language Learning and Teaching (2359 citations)
  • Understanding second language acquisition (1993 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Rod Ellis focuses on Linguistics, Second-language acquisition, Language education, Mathematics education and Cognitive psychology. His work in Comprehension approach, Grammar, Language assessment, Language pedagogy and Language transfer are all subfields of Linguistics research. Rod Ellis focuses mostly in the field of Grammar, narrowing it down to matters related to Teaching method and, in some cases, Focus on form.

While the research belongs to areas of Second-language acquisition, Rod Ellis spends his time largely on the problem of Corrective feedback, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Second language writing. His Language education study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Applied linguistics and Task analysis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Psycholinguistics and Explicit knowledge in addition to Cognitive psychology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Linguistics (53.51%)
  • Second-language acquisition (37.72%)
  • Language education (23.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Language education (23.25%)
  • Mathematics education (19.30%)
  • Cognitive psychology (18.86%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Language education, Mathematics education, Cognitive psychology, Second-language acquisition and Corrective feedback. His research in Language education intersects with topics in Young learners and First language. His Mathematics education study incorporates themes from Task analysis, Grammar and Curriculum.

As a member of one scientific family, Rod Ellis mostly works in the field of Cognitive psychology, focusing on Dictogloss and, on occasion, Present perfect and Relation. Rod Ellis has included themes like Epistemology, Statement, Task repetition and Field in his Second-language acquisition study. He studied Learning theory and Explicit knowledge that intersect with Linguistics.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Position Paper: Moving Task-Based Language Teaching Forward. (36 citations)
  • Effects of computer-assisted glosses on EFL learners’ vocabulary acquisition and reading comprehension in three learning conditions (32 citations)
  • Towards a modular language curriculum for using tasks (21 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Linguistics
  • Social science
  • Grammar

His main research concerns Mathematics education, Cognitive psychology, Language education, Grammar and Raising. Rod Ellis is studying Corrective feedback, which is a component of Mathematics education. His Cognitive psychology research incorporates themes from Relation, Dictogloss, Fluency and Grammatical structure.

The Language education study combines topics in areas such as Teaching method, Cognitive science, Task analysis and Syllabus. His work in Grammar addresses subjects such as Explicit knowledge, which are connected to disciplines such as Control, Grammaticality, Imitation, Curriculum and Learning theory. His work in Curriculum tackles topics such as Language acquisition which are related to areas like Second-language acquisition.
