Abstract:

Despite the status of Arabic as a global language and the high demand to learn it, the field of Arabic second language acquisition remains under-investigated. Second language acquisition findings are crucial for informing and advancing the field of Arabic foreign language pedagogy including its teaching, testing, and syllabus design.

Arabic Second Language Learning and Effects of Input, Transfer, and Typology provides data-driven empirical findings of a number of basic and high-frequency morphosyntactic structures with novel typological language pairings: Arabic second language acquisition data from adult L1 Chinese and L1 Russian speaking learners of Arabic as a foreign language. It examines the different processes, hypotheses, and acquisition tendencies from the two learner groups. Alhawary’s study documents the extent of the successes and challenges faced by such learners during their L2 Arabic grammatical development during the first three years of learning the language. In addition, it integrates previously published findings with new ones and offers both theoretical and practical implications related to input exposure, L1 and L2 transfer, and typological and structural proximity.

The book serves as a resource book for both second language acquisition experts and foreign language teaching practitioners.
