Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism 33
Description:

This collection of articles provides theoretical foundations and
perspectives for language attrition research. Its purpose is to enable
investigations of L1 attrition to avail themselves more fully and more
fundamentally of the theoretical frameworks that have been formulated with
respect to SLA and bilingualism. In the thirteen papers collected here,
experts in particular disciplines of bilingualism, such as
neurolinguistics, formal linguistics, contact linguistics and language and
identity, provide an in-depth perspective on L1 attrition which will make
the translation of theory to hypothesis easier for future research.
