The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.
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.
