Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This is a study of the phonological development of a family of L2 English
learners. It is the first full-length book that focuses on a tightly-knit
group of learners' acquisition of phonology over a longitudinal timeframe,
and the first book to study both social and linguistic factors across that
time period.

Jette G. Hansen analyses this data gathered from actual language learners
in the light of recent theory, as well as challenging aspects of current
thinking on the subject of second language acquisition. Acquiring a
Non-Native Phonology therefore makes an important and original contribution
to the field and provides an in-depth analysis and discussion of the
developmental processes in acquiring a non-native sound system which has
not previously been presented.

The book is aimed at academics interested in second language acquisition,
and researchers studying phonology in general.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition

Written In: English (eng )
