Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
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.
