This book addresses the tradition of ahistoricity within the field of second
language (L2) acquisition theory. The author shows that L2 theory has a long
and fruitful past within western linguistics and that notions of universal
grammar have for some time shaped, and been shaped by, people's understanding
of L2 learning.
