Abstract:

This book reports on a research project conducted in multilingual Hong Kong,
where Cantonese is the mother tongue (L1) of the majority of the population
and learning different foreign languages is commonplace. In addition to
English, which is usually the second language (L2), more and more people learn
other languages, such as French (L3). Drawing on the notions of ‘interface’
and ‘reverse transfer’ in second language acquisition, this book addresses the
possible role of L3 French in the acquisition of English as an L2 with two
major concerns: firstly, the degree to which L3 acquisition will bring about a
positive or negative transfer effect on L2 acquisition and secondly, the way
in which an L3 interacts with an L2 and/or even an L1 on different interfaces
as identified in second language acquisition. The study will appeal to
researchers interested in second and third language acquisition, bi- and
multilingualism and crosslinguistic influence.
