The focus of this collection is on important themes in L2 acquisition, the
nature of grammatical systems developed by language learners in L1
acquisition, third language acquisition, and bilingualism and language
attrition. The chapters present an interesting mix of theoretical
contributions, overview studies, and experimental designs exploring various
research questions, such as learnability and access to UG, L1 influence,
the nature of initial and endstate grammars, and variability. The
linguistic domains investigated are also extremely diverse: morphosyntax,
phonology, the lexicon, argument realization, language processing, and
interface phenomena.

This book, edited and written by McGill University alumni, is intended as a
tribute to Lydia White's contribution to the field of generative second
language acquisition. The authors present current work on language
acquisition which further investigates several themes developed by White's
research. Through these state-of-the-art contributions the reader will be
able to identify important new directions in which generative language
acquisition is developing and expanding.
