Title: Third Language Learners
Subtitle: Pragmatic Production and Awareness
Written By: Maria Pilar Safont Jordà
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=185359802X
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

The book aims to provide a bridge between two applied linguistics
subfields, namely those of interlanguage pragmatics and third language
acquisition. It examines the production and identification of request acts
formulas on the part of bilingual learners of English in the Valencian
Community (Spain). Previous to the empirical study itself, we present an
overview of the theoretical background and the sociolinguistic context
where the experiment was conducted.
