Never Quite a Native Speaker: Accent and Identity in the L2-and the L1.
Marx, Nicole
Canadian Modern Language Review, v59 n2 p264-81 Dec 2002
Examines second language (L2) and second culture (C2) acquisition by focusing on identity and more specifically on changes in L2 accent. Explains changes in the L2 accent and later in the first language (L1) accent, applying the metaphor of self-translation as a general framework for explaining processes of L2 learning and L1 loss, and the construction and reconstruction of learner identity.
