The Continuum Companion To Second Language Acquistion is designed to
be the essential one-volume resource for advanced students and academics.
It offers a comprehensive reference resource: it features an overview of
key topics in SLA as well the key research methods. It then goes on to look
at current research areas and new directions in the field by examining key
relationships in the field, including the relationship between first and
second language acquisition and the relationship between L2 input and L2
It is a complete resource for postgraduate students and researchers working
within second language acquisition and applied linguistics.
‘This is a valuable collection of papers, which can be warmly recommended
to any student of second language acquisition.’
