Title: Language Transfer in Language Learning
Edited By: Susan M. Gass
Larry Selinker

The study of native language influence in Second Language Acquisition has undergone significant changes over the past few decades. This volume traces the conceptual history of language transfer from its early role within a Contrastive Analysis framework to its current position within Universal Grammar. For the present book the 1983 edition has been thoroughly revised, and some papers have been replaced, some added.
