The first comprehensive case study of how a multilingual learner approaches
a new language.

This volume presents an extended case study of an adult multilingual
speaker who acquires a new language through social interaction. Various
aspects of third language acquisition are discussed in six chapters. The
book deals especially with the multilingual situation, the learner's
acquisitional activities, and the involvement of background languages in
the process of speaking. It offers a coherent study of various linguistic
phenomena in one individual, including patterns and functions of language
switching, word search in interaction, hypothetical construction of words,
and articulatory settings in speaking. The main languages involved are
English (L1), German (L2) and Swedish (L3). The activation of these
languages in the learner's speech is examined in a cognitive perspective in
relation to current models of the speaking process. A longitudinal corpus
of NNS-NS conversations covering 21 months from the beginner stage provides
the main data for these studies.

Key Features:
*Presents an example of an active and purposeful language acquirer
*Explores cross-linguistic influence in a multilingual setting
*Highlights the significance of prior L2 knowledge in L3 performance
*Analysis is based on two years of recorded conversation
*Useful for students and researchers interested in second and third
language acquisition, individual multilingualism and the human speaking
