Univ of Toronto Pr
This volume presents a selection of second language acquisition studies at the level of morphosyntax. It looks at different aspects of morphosyntactic development of bilingual language learners/users such as language transfer, syntactic processing, morphology and the pragmatics of language among others. The studies report on projects carried out in different language contact contexts, ranging from: English, German, Polish, Greek and Turkish. The volume also includes those studies which show the interface between research findings and pedagogy of foreign language teaching.

Book News
Teachers of, mostly, English as a second language report empirical findings, and researchers in linguistics report theoretical perspectives on various issues related to the morphosyntactic development of foreign language learners from different first-language background, in many cases languages typologically distant from English, such as Polish, Greek, and Turkish. They emphasize areas that show signs of being transfer-prone at both the inter-lingual transfer and the intra-lingual levels. There is no index. Distributed in the US by UTP Distribution.
