概要: Emotions regarding second language (L2) writing have been examined using qualitative methods. Current research has explo red how L2 learners present emotions about experiences and specific events through writing using qualitative approaches. However, such investigations have only explored the learners’ emotions through the lens of the textual level. Emotions involve complex feelings and sense, and equally, the writers have unspeakable feelings. To better understand the feelings that can be difficult to articulate, the Focusing (Gendlin, 1978) and Thinking At the Edge (TAE) (Gendlin & Hendricks, 2004) methods can be applied to emotional studies of L2 writing as an innovative tool. This paper focuses primarily on emotional studies of L2 writers. It reviews the author’s pilot study of Japanese EFL (English as a foreign language) writers, and their felt sense of writing in English employing TAE methods. Finally, this paper provides research implications for emotions in L2 writing. 続きを見る

概要: This study explores one EFL writer’s emotional aspects towards writing in second language (L2) through verbalizing her f elt sense using the Thinking at the Edge (TAE) approach. Data collected include the participant’s autobiography of learning English, TAE-based reflective worksheets, and an individual interview. To analyze the data, thematic analysis (Boyatzis, 1998) in a qualitative method was employed. The findings reveal that the participant showed difficulty in expressing herself clearly in English and remained apprehensive about using English words and expressions properly. However, she realized the importance of English writing, which has promoted her creating a sense of confidence and writing proficiency. This study indicates that the findings obtained by the TAE approach will enhance the importance of seeking learners’ psychological engagement with writing in L2 in a qualitative manner. 続きを見る
