Reviews

'... combines great clarity of exposition, a focus on the linguistics of second language acquisition, and an effort to integrate diverse theoretical perspectives into a complex understanding of second language acquisition as a whole - all in less than 300 pages. While billed as a textbook for undergraduates, this text could easily be used in graduate-level introductory courses in second language acquisition. The chapter-ending discussion questions and activities, as well as a handy glossary of terms, make this more than just a textbook, however: it provides many of the materials needed to design an introductory course in the subject.' Dwight Atkinson, University of Arizona
