This book looks at changes in the first language of people who know a
second language, thus seeing L2 users as people in their own right
differing from the monolingual in both first and second languages. It
presents theories and research that investigate the first language of
second language users from a variety of perspectives including
vocabulary, pragmatics, cognition, and syntax and using a variety of
linguistic and psychological models.
