As one of the first books in child second language acquisition (SLA), this
book focuses on the core area of tense-aspect morphology, reporting on
three L1-Italian children learning L2 English vs. three L1-English children
learning L2 Italian. An innovative longitudinal/bidirectional research
design, where two languages represent both source and target, show effects
of language transfer in learners that, because of their age, still have
potential to become native-speakers of the target. An unusual feature of
this book is that relevant studies of acquisition of L2 Italian, some
heretofore only in Italian, are reviewed, incorporated into the study and
made available to a more general audience. Though the main focus is on
child SLA, crucial comparisons to both first language acquisition vs. adult
SLA are presented. This approach will thus be of interest more generally to
readers in first and second language acquisition and child development.
