Abstract:

This volume aims to provide a broad view of second language acquisition within 
a comparative perspective that addresses results concerning adult and child 
learners across a variety of source and target languages. It brings together 
contributions at the forefront of language acquisition research that consider a 
wide range of open questions: What are the precise mechanisms underlying 
acquisition? How can we characterize learners' initial state and predict their 
degree of final achievement? What role do specific (typological) properties of 
source and target languages play? How does fossilization occur? How does the 
relative complexity of cognitive systems in adult and child learners affect 
acquisition? Does language learning influence cognitive organization? Can 
language learning shed light on our general understanding of human language 
and language processing?
