Crosslinguistic Influence: Transfer to Nowhere?
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v15 p125-50 1995
Reviews recent research on crosslinguistic influence, focusing on the part played by knowledge of one's first language in the acquisition of a second language (L2). It is also argued that there can be transfer that is not licensed by similarity to the L2, and where the way the L2 works may largely go unheeded. (86 references) (MDM)
