Title: The Sociolinguistic Competence of Immersion Students
Written By: Raymond Mougeon
Terry Nadasdi
Katherine Rehner
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692382
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

This book reports the findings of an extensive research project on the
acquisition of the native norms of spoken French variation by French
immersion students who have learnt their second language primarily in an
educational context. The project focused on a range of phonetic, lexical
and grammatical sociolinguistic variants documented in studies of
contemporary first language varieties of spoken French, and assessed the
extent to which the students master the linguistic and extra-linguistic
factors which govern variant choice. The book also discusses pedagogical
strategies to improve the students’ mastery of spoken French variation. The
book represents an important contribution to an under-researched aspect of
advanced Second Language Acquisition in an institutional setting.
