Abstract:

What is involved in acquiring a new dialect - for example, when Canadian 
English speakers move to Australia or African American English-speaking 
children go to school? How is such learning different from second language 
acquisition (SLA), and why is it in some ways more difficult? These are some of 
the questions Jeff Siegel examines in this book, the first to focus specifically on 
second dialect acquisition (SDA). Siegel surveys a wide range of studies that 
throw light on SDA. These concern dialects of English as well as those of other 
languages, including Dutch, German, Greek, Norwegian, Portuguese and 
Spanish. He also describes the individual and linguistic factors that affect SDA, 
such as age, social identity and language complexity. The book discusses 
problems faced by students who have to acquire the standard dialect without 
any special teaching, and presents some educational approaches that have 
been successful in promoting SDA in the classroom.
