Title: Universal Grammar in Second-Language Acquisition
Subtitle: A History
Written By: Margaret Thomas
Series Title: Routledge Studies in the History of Linguistics
Description:

This book addresses the tradition of ahistoricity within the field of second language (L2) acquisition theory. The author shows that L2 theory has a long and fruitful past within western linguistics and that notions of universal grammar have for some time shaped, and been shaped by, people's understanding of L2 learning.
