Title: Needs, attitude and motivation among Kashmiris learning English - a linguistic analysis.
Author: Jehan Ara (Scholar); Kak, Aadil Amin (Guide)
Abstract: All normal native speakers have linguistic competence in their first language. All children, with very few exceptions, succeed in learning their first language over a comparatively same period of time, surrounded usually by native speakers, till they reach the Steady state (Chomsky, 1986). What is important here is the destination of the child is certain, a Steady State at approximately similar age. However, in the case of second language acquisition/learning, things are different. First, there is no Steady State common to all the learners, rather the final stage is a variable, rather than a constant. Environment also varies from formal to informal surroundings, etc. So, far from having a comparative uniformity in many ways as in the case of first language, second language acquisition/ learning is much more complex and varied, and fraught with more multidimensional issues. Since 19th century, great amount of work has been witnessed in the field of second language acquisition/ learning research. Answers to number of questions were tried to sort out and during this course two different views turned to become milestones for the rest of the research in this field.
