Abstract:

Now Available in Paperback!

Age effects have played a particularly prominent role in some theoretical
perspectives on second language acquisition. This book takes an entirely
new perspective on this issue by re-examining these theories in light of
the existence of apparently similar non-native outcomes in adult heritage
speakers who, unlike adult second language learners, acquired two or more
languages in childhood. Despite having been exposed to their family
language early in life, many of these speakers never fully acquire, or
later lose, aspects of their first language sometime in childhood. The book
examines the structural characteristics of "incomplete" grammatical states
and highlights how age of acquisition is related to the type of linguistic
knowledge and behavior that emerges in L1 and L2 acquisition under
different environmental circumstances. By underscoring age of acquisition
as a unifying factor in the study of L2 acquisition and L1 attrition, it is
claimed that just as there are age effects in L2 acquisition, there are
also age effects, or even perhaps a critical period, in L1 attrition. The
book covers adult L2 acquisition, attrition in adults and in children, and
includes a comparison of adult heritage language speakers and second
language learners.

"This important and well-written book offers a timely and well-balanced
review of recent research on non-native attainment. Montrul examines in
great detail how age of acquisition is related to non-native outcomes, not
only in L2 acquisition, but also in L1 attrition and in incomplete L1
acquisition as a result of early L2 acquisition, and how experiential
factors interact with the age factor in effecting these outcomes. This book
is a mine of information and is highly recommended to students of language
acquisition, language attrition and bilingualism alike."
