Abstract:

Key Features:

Brings together a range of views on the concept of the native speaker
including psycholinguistic, linguistic and sociolinguistic aspects.
Concludes that all characteristics of the native speaker (except early
childhood exposure) are contingent

Description

Linguists, applied linguists and language teachers all appeal to the
native speaker as an important reference point. But what exactly (who
exactly?) is the native speaker? This book examines the native speaker
from different points of view, arguing that the native speaker is both
myth and reality.
