NEW TRENDS IN CROSSLINGUISTIC INFLUENCE AND MULTILINGUALISM RESEARCH
Edited by Gessica De Angelis and Jean-Marc Dewaele
This excellent volume provides additional scientific evidence
about the role of the previously acquired languages in the study
of crosslinguistic influence and multilingualism.
Jasone Cenoz, University of the Basque Country, Spain

influence (CLI) and multilingualism research. The contributors
situate their research in current debates and present it in an
accessible way. They consider CLI in lexis, syntax, tense-aspect,
morphology, phonology of multilingual production and link it to
concepts such as redundancy, affordances, metalinguistic awareness
and L2 status.

DISCOURSE, IDENTITY, AND CHINA'S INTERNAL MIGRATION
The Long March to the City
Through her insightful ethnographic exploration of rural-urban
migrant identity in neighborhoods and schools of Beijing, Dong
Jie has achieved the ambitious purpose of documenting both the
rapidly changing face of China's super-diverse cities and the
theoretical value of a scaled approach to the study of linguistic
processes of identity construction.
Nancy Hornberger, University of Pennsylvania, USA
Migrant workers are crucial to China's fast growing economy, yet
little is known about their identities. This ethnographic study
of the language use and identity construction of the children of
internal migrants is innovative both in the context it studies and
the scalar structure of discursive identity construction used to
present its data.
Price: £24.95 / US$39.95 / €34.95

Translation and Opposition is a must-read for anyone interested
in the issues of agency, censorship and power.

INDIVIDUAL LEARNER DIFFERENCES IN SLA
Edited by Janusz Arabski and Adam Wojtaszek
This volume makes a very important contribution to research on
themes and issues connected with Individual Learner Difference in
SLA. A "must" for researchers in SLA.
Muiris Ó Laoire, Institute of Technology Tralee, Ireland
Individual Learner Differences in SLA addresses the apparently
insoluble conflict between the unquestionably individual character
of the process of second language acquisition / foreign language
learning and the institutionalised, often inflexible character of
formal instruction in which it takes place. How, then, is success
in SLA so prevalent?
Price: £79.95 / US$129.95 / €89.95
