Dr. Jacquelyn Schachter contributed extensively to pioneering basic research on second language acquisition (SLA) in the 1970s and 1980s as the field was becoming independent of its previous role as a subsidiary to language teaching. In addition to her research, Schachter contributed to the expansion of the field by extensive editing of volumes of collected papers, conference proceedings, and periodicals.
