Acquiring a non-native phonology: linguistic constraints and social barriers
This is a study of the phonological development of a family of L2 English learners. It is the first full-length book to focus on a tightly knit group of learners' acquisition of phonology over a longitudinal timeframe, and the first book to study both social and linguistic factors across that time period.
Jette G. Hansen analyses data gathered from actual language learners in the light of recent theory, as well as challenging aspects of current thinking on the subject of second language acquisition. Acquiring a Non-Native Phonology therefore makes an important and original contribution to the field and provides an in-depth analysis and innovative discussion of the developmental processes in acquiring a non-native sound system.
