In the field of social psychology, however, attitudes tend to be specific to objects (Baker, 1992:15). 1 Attitudes in Social Psychology 21 2001). Studies which investigate the language attitudes of a community, such as the English language learning community in contemporary Japan, are likely to help in the provision of a methodological framework for the study of the ideological forces which operate in those communities. 2 Mentalist and Behaviourist Theories of Attitudes Generally, attitude research has been conducted according to two psychological approaches: the behaviourist view and the mentalist (or cognitive) view.

The implication is that attitudes are not directly observable but can only be inferred from respondents’ introspection. It is for this reason that researchers must rely upon 22 2 The Study of Language Attitudes the individuals themselves to report their perceptions. Mentalists often assume a tripartite model of attitude formation, differentiating between the cognitive, affective and conative components. Recent research in social psychology suggests that not all of these three components will necessarily be represented in any given attitude and indeed, that the components cannot always be distinguished from one another (Bohner and Wanke, 2002: 5).

Cognitive theories of second language acquisition (as well as theories of L1 acquisition) view linguistic knowledge as no different from other categories of knowledge and consider the strategies responsible for its development to be general in nature and related to and involved in other types of learning. One prominent cognitive theory of second language acquisition is the monitor model (Krashen, 1981). This model posits that there exists both a conscious and a subconscious language system which can both be activated in any language situation.
