Third Language Acquisition and Universal Grammar contains nine chapters on
adult third language (L3) or multilingual acquisition from the Universal
Grammar (UG) perspective. A variety of languages other than English are
involved in the studies reported in the papers, including Cantonese
Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Mandarin Chinese,
Norwegian, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Thai, with acquisition cases
taking place in a number of different geographical locations, such as
Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Norway, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK and the USA.
This volume will appeal to those studying L3 acquisition from a variety of
theoretical perspectives and should encourage scholarly exchange between
the fields of bi-/multilingualism and SLA.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
