Title: The Acquisition of Second-Language Syntax
Written By: Susan l. Braidi
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0340645911.html
Description:

The issue of syntactic development is one of the most central to both
linguistics and applied linguistics. Assuming no detailed background
knowledge of linguistics, this book is an introduction to the acquisition
of syntax in a second language. The text builds a coherent picture of
second language grammatical development by showing the interactions between
the syntactic, processing, and functional/discourse approaches, and looks
at how and why these different approaches give different results.
