Book Information


Title: Research in Second Language Processing and Parsing
Edited By: Bill VanPatten
Jill Jegerski
Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 53

This volume is the first dedicated to the growing field of theory and
research on second language processing and parsing. The fourteen papers in
this volume offer cutting-edge research using a number of different
languages (e.g., Arabic, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, English) and
structures (e.g., relative clauses, wh-gaps, gender, number) to examine
various issues in second language processing: first language influence,
whether or not non-natives can achieve native-like processing, the roles of
context and prosody, the effects of working memory, and others. The
researchers include both established scholars and newer voices, all
offering important insights into the factors that affect processing and
parsing in a second language.
