Abstract

This collection is the latest in the Multilingual Matters series on second language acquisition (SLA). The provenance of the volume is cognitive linguistics and the emphasis is on the universality of the mental processes associated with SLA. The book is broadly divided in two, offering a theoretical and empirical snapshot of contemporary work in language transfer and contrastive analysis. Compared to more substantial anthologies on the market, this collection is affordable, thought-provoking and topical, earning its place on personal bookshelves as much as within institutional libraries.
