This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."
Second Language Lexical Processes
Applied Linguistic and Psycholinguistic Perspectives
The book contains studies on second language lexical processes based on empirical findings by authors mostly from Central Europe. The reader may have access to the storage and working of second language lexicons. Questions of integration, storage, vocabulary acquisition and assessment, word retrieval, and lexical access are the focus of the studies, which include reference to language users from Finno-Ugric (Hungarian) and Slavic (Croatian, Polish) language backgrounds.
