Book Cover
The Handbook of Second Language Acquisition

The Handbook of Second Language Acquistion presents an integrated discussion of key, and sometimes controversial, issues in second language acquistion (SLA) research.

Written by twenty-seven of the world's leading scholars, the chapters reflect the diversity and technicality that have come to characterize SLA research. Topics discussed included the biological and cognitive underpinnings of SLA; mechanisms, processes, and constraints on SLA; the level of ultimate attainment; research methods; and the status of SLA as a cognitive science.

This Handbook is an invaluable resource for all students and scholars of human cognition, including those in linguistics, psychology, applied linguistics, ESL, foreign languages, and cognitive science.
