Abstract:

This book consists of eight articles by leading scholars investigating
the acquisition of English by native speakers of Japanese. Because
Japanese and English are typologically different along a number of
dimensions, the studies in this book address issues which do not arise
with other L1-L2 pairings. In addition, they cover a wide range of
topics from the acquisiton of VP structures to Functional Category and
present new methods of data collection.

The studies all contribute to our understanding of these topics, and
they are of current interest to researchers working on Second Language
Acquisition.

Shigenori Wakabayashi is Professor at the Gunmar Prefectural Women's
University, Gunmar, Japan.
