Abstract:

While the literature on second language acquisition and use is overwhelmingly
rich with respect to initial and intermediate stages of development, present
knowledge of levels of ultimate attainment that are equal or close to that if
native speakers has so far not been presented in a coherent manner. This is
what the present volume aims to achieve. In addition to chapters that
summarize what is currently known about the grammatical, lexical, and
discourse features that continue to exhibit instability at the most advanced
levels of second language development, the volume presents overviews of the
incipient research on two unique learner populations, polyglots and employees
in international call centres. Polyglots, defined as language users who are
proficient in six or more second languages, may be considered second language
learners par excellence. Call centre employees in economically less developed
parts of the world are intriguing in how they cope with the high language
proficiency requirements of their job. In conclusion, this book is relevant
for all readers - both professionals and students - interested in the
development of second language theory. For language teachers, the book
provides insights that are profitable in classrooms for advanced learners.
