The acquisition of second or foreign languages is studied primarily by applied linguists. People learning a second language pass through some of the same stages, including overgeneralization, as do children learning their native language. However, people rarely become as fluent in a second language as in their native tongue. This book covers key topics in second language acquisition and bilingualism, examining different theoretical approaches and introducing key theories in the field. Real studies are examined in areas such as acquisition of morphology, syntax and phonology, and practice questions give students a chance to think critically about crucial areas.

The intended readership of the series is final-year undergraduates working on second language acquisition projects, postgraduate students involved in second language acquisition research, and researchers, teachers and policy-makers in general whose interests include a second language acquisition component.
