Second Language Writing Systems looks at how people learn and use a second language writing system, arguing that they are affected by characteristics of the first and second writing systems, to a certain extent independently of the languages involved. This book for the first time presents the effects of writing systems on second language reading and writing and on second language awareness, and provides a new platform for discussing bilingualism, biliteracy and writing systems.
What people are saying - Write a review
Very helpful for those who are analyzing reading and writing processes of non-native speakers of English. It gives an overview to justify the difficulties ESL learners have by comparing the language families/origins between English and those of the ESL learners. Part 3 lays out some justification and implication for remedial classes and intervention especially in the phonological processes.
This is the first book to treat the acquisition and use of a second language writing system. Drawing from a variety of disciplines and writing systems, it investigates how people read, write and analyse a writing system that represents a second language.
