Abstract:

What is involved in acquiring a new dialect - for example, when Canadian
English speakers move to Australia or African American English-speaking
children go to school? How is such learning different from second language
acquisition (SLA), and why is it in some ways more difficult? These are some of
the questions Jeff Siegel examines in this book, the first to focus specifically on
second dialect acquisition (SDA). Siegel surveys a wide range of studies that
throw light on SDA. These concern dialects of English as well as those of other
languages, including Dutch, German, Greek, Norwegian, Portuguese and
Spanish. He also describes the individual and linguistic factors that affect SDA,
such as age, social identity and language complexity. The book discusses
problems faced by students who have to acquire the standard dialect without
any special teaching, and presents some educational approaches that have
been successful in promoting SDA in the classroom.
