The Acquisition of Japanese as a Second Language

Hardback
This book marks the first-ever collection of papers in English on the acquisition of Japanese as a second language. Its overarching goal is to broaden and deepen the field of SLA research by focusing on Japanese rather than on more commonly studied European languages. Broad in scope and eclectic in approach with chapters by leading scholars in the field, The Acquisition of Japanese as a Second Language offers a survey of the far-ranging field of SLA research as it applies to Japanese. Chapters include studies on input and interaction, research into the evaluation of L2 proficiency, and investigations of the grammatical system that is the product of second language learning.
