This volume consists of a collection of papers that focus onstructural/grammatical aspects of the process of first language attrition. Itpresents an overview of current research, methodological issues and importantquestions regarding first language attrition. In particular, it addresses the twomost prominent issues in current L1 attrition research: Can attrition effectsimpact on features of core syntax, or are they limited to interface phenomena?,and; What is the role of age at onset (pre-/post-puberty) in this regard?

By investigating attrition in a variety of settings, from a case study of a Spanish-
speaking adoptee in the US to an empirical investigation of more than 50 long-
term attriters of Turkish in the Netherlands, the investigations presented take anew perspective on these issues.
