  • Hispanic Child Languagesby John Grinstead

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 149.00

    This chapter investigates whether a specific grammatical marker can be used to identify specific language impairment (SLI) in monolingual Spanish-speaking (SS) children that is consistent with a linguistic knowledge deficit account of SLI. A number of grammatical markers that have been identified as vulnerable to error in Spanish-English bilingual... more...

  • Incomplete Acquisition in Bilingualismby Silvina A. Montrul

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 54.00

    Age effects have played a particularly prominent role in some theoretical perspectives on second language acquisition. This book takes an entirely new perspective on this issue by re-examining these theories in light of the existence of apparently similar non-native outcomes in adult heritage speakers who, unlike adult second language learners, acquired... more...

  • Information Structure and the Dynamics of Language Acquisitionby Christine Dimroth; Marianne Starren

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 180.00

    The papers in this volume focus on the impact of information structure on language acquisition, thereby taking different linguistic approaches into account. They start from an empirical point of view, and examine data from natural first and second language acquisition, which cover a wide range of varieties, from early learner language to native speaker... more...

  • Input and Evidenceby Susanne Elizabeth Carroll

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 195.00

    Input and Evidence: the raw material of second language acquisition is an empirical and theoretical treatment of one of the essential components of SLA: the input to language learning mechanisms. It reviews and adds to the empirical studies showing that negative evidence (correction, feedback, repetitions, reformulations) play a role in language... more...

  • The L2 Acquisition of Tense–Aspect Morphologyby M. Rafael Salaberry; Yasuhiro Shirai

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 195.00

    The present volume provides a cross-linguistic perspective on the development of tense-aspect in L2 acquisition. Data-based studies included in this volume deal with the analysis of a wide range of target languages: Chinese, English, Italian, French, Japanese, and Spanish. Theoretical frameworks used to evaluate the nature of the empirical evidence... more...

  • Language Acquisition and the Form of the Grammarby David Lebeaux

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 165.00

    Language Acquisition and the Form of the Grammar attempts to re-think the ideal organization of the grammar, given its need to be learned. The book proposes a fundamental connection between the form of the adult grammar and the sequence of grammars which the child adopts in first language acquisition. Challenging the conventional division between... more...

  • Language Development across Childhood and Adolescenceby Ruth A. Berman

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    This volume brings together work by scholars with backgrounds in linguistics, psycholinguistics, developmental psychology, education, and language pathology. As such, the book adds psycholinguistic and crosslinguistic perspectives to the clinical and classroom approaches that have dominated the study of “later language development”. Incorporating insights... more...

  • Language Experience in Second Language Speech Learningby Ocke-Schwen Bohn; Murray J. Munro

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 173.00

    The notion of phonetic segment, phone and phoneme are closely related and all are intuitively appealing. At least one of them seems like the right description for speech. But all those who report these intuitions happen to be people who learned to write using a phonetic alphabet in early childhood. Speech is difficult to attend to because of its rapidity,... more...

  • Learning a Second Language through Interactionby Rod Ellis

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1999; US$ 57.00

    This book examines different theoretical perspectives on the role that interaction plays in second language acquisition. The principal perspectives are those afforded by the Interaction Hypothesis, Socio-Cultural Theory and the Levels of Processing model. Interaction is, therefore, defined broadly; it is seen as involving both intermental and intramental... more...

  • The Lexicon–Syntax Interface in Second Language Acquisitionby Roeland van Hout; Aafke Hulk; Folkert Kuiken; Richard J. Towell

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2003; US$ 149.00

    Second language acquisition has to integrate the totality of the SLA process, which includes both the learning of the core syntax of a language and the learning of the lexical items that have to be incorporated into that syntax. But these two domains involve different kinds of learning. Syntax is learnt through a process of implementing a particular... more...
