This series brings together titles dealing with a variety of aspects of language acquisition and processing in situations where a language or languages other than the native language is involved. Second language is therefore interpreted in its broadest possible sense. The volumes included in the series all in their different ways offer, on the one hand, exposition and discussion of empirical findings and, on the other, some degree of theoretical reflection. In this latter connection, no particular theoretical stance is privileged in the series; nor is any relevant perspective - sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, etc. - deemed out of place. 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.

All books in this series are externally peer-reviewed.

Proposals for the series are welcome and should be submitted to Laura Longworth. Please read our notes about how to submit a book proposal.
