Abstract:

This book examines the evidence relative to the idea that there is an
age factor in first and second language acquisition, evidence that has
sources ranging from studies of feral children to evaluations of
language programmes in primary schools. It goes on to explore the
various explanations that have been advanced to account for such
evidence. Finally, it looks at the educational ramifications of the
age question, with particular regard to formal second language
teaching in the early school years and in 'third age' contexts.

Lingfield(s):	Language Acquisition
