This volume provides an unprecedented insight into current
approaches to crosslinguistic influence (CLI). The collection
investigates a range of themes including linguistic relativity, the
possible contributions of neurolinguistics, the problem of
cognitive development and the role of the frequency of structures
in acquisition from distinct, overlapping and complementary
perspectives. Chapters focusing on vocabulary, morphosyntactic
categories, semantic structures, and phonetic and phonological
structures feature in the volume, as do over 20 languages, in order
to offer new insights into both theoretical and empirical issues in
CLI, including the consequences of great or little similarity in
structures between languages. The relevance of CLI research for
teaching is discussed in a number of chapters, as is the phenomenon
of multilingualism. The collection will appeal to researchers,
graduate and postgraduate students, teachers and professionals
interested in the field of CLI in SLA.
