The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes.

Title: Neurolinguistic and Psycholinguistic Perspectives on SLA
Edited By: Janusz Arabski
Adam Wojtaszek
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692412
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

Neurolinguistic and Psycholinguistic Perspectives on SLA is a collection of
twelve chapters, reporting on research results and presenting theoretical
insights into the processes of language acquisition. It is divided into two
major sections: the first part demonstrates the ways in which the latest
developments in non-invasive techniques of brain monitoring allow
researchers to test hypothesis related to biological foundations of
language acquisition, including also accounts of emotional factors, limbic
communication and evidence from language disorders. The second part offers
psycholinguistic modelling of a number of components of second language
competence, such as the acquisition of reading and writing, handling of
foreign language vocabulary and the nature of bi- and multilingualism. It
is a valuable collection for active researchers in the field, as well as
for postgraduate students in language acquisition, psycholinguistics and
neurolinguistics.
