Overview

Second Language Acquisition and Linguistic Variation by Robert Bayley, Dennis R. Preston, James Emil Flege, Murray J. Munro

This volume corrects the relative neglect in Second Language Acquisition studies of the quantitative study of language variation and provides insights into such issues as language transfer, acquisition through exposure, language universals, learner's age and so forth.

These studies bolster the idea that a full account of SLA development (and, hence, a "theory of SLA") must be built on not only derailed accounts of interlanguage data but also on a wide appeal to factors which govern the psycholinguistic bases of SLA.
