Book Information


Title: The Acquisition of Temporality in a Second Language
Written By: Rainer Dietrich
Wolfgang Klein
Colette Noyau
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism, 7
Description:

This is the second volume in the Studies in Bilingualism series to present results from the European Science Foundation's project 'Second language acquisition by adult immigrants'. It deals specifically with the acquisition of temporality in five European languages: Dutch, English, French, German and Swedish, providing a detailed account of how adult learners who have little or no exposure to classroom teaching, express temporality at any given stage of the acquisition process, how they proceed from one stage to the next, and what factors determine both their progress and their final levels of proficiency.
