en Limba Engleză Hardback – 2012
This volume aims to provide a broad view of SLA, from initial to final stages. It does this within a comparative perspective that addresses results concerning adult and child learners across a variety of source and target languages, in order to assess the relative weight of cognitive and typological determinants during language learning.

Notă biografică

Marzena Watorek is Professor in Linguistics at the University Paris 8. Her research interests include first and second language acquisition, particularly discourse production, initial processing of the input by adult learners, and the interface between language acquisition and teaching.; Sandra Benazzo is Associate Professor in Linguistics and French as a Second Language at the University Lille 3. Her research mainly concerns l 2 acquisition in the domain of temporality, information structure, discourse organization and the comparison with l 1 acquisition.; Maya Hickmann is Research Director in the Laboratoire Structures Formelles du Langage (CNRS and Universite Paris 8). Her research mainly focuses on the role of structural vs. functional and universal vs. language-specific determinants in first and second language acquisition.

This well-edited collection of papers responds to the theoretical issues that concerned Clive Perdue throughout his productive career. The 29 Chapters examine similarities and differences between monolinguals, childhood bilinguals, and adult and child learners of a second language. We see how learner productions are influenced by perceptual abilities, l 1 transfer, and explicit learning as they operate across the lifespan, rather than some uniform expiration of a critical period.Brian MacWhinney, Carnegie Mellon University, USAIn this volume, written by collaborators and friends of Clive Perdue, we find both familiar themes such as the expression of meaning in language, and unfamiliar ones such as the critical period, evolution, and signed language. Well-studied migrant workers provide data as do new populations (tutored learners, child l 2ers, near native adult l 2ers, bilinguals). What binds the contributions is a concern with simpler linguistic systems. A worthy tribute to Clive's intellectual legacy.Susanne Carroll, University of Calgary, Canada
