Review Article: Second Language Acquisition of Bantu Languages--A (Mostly) Untapped Research Opportunity
Spinner, Patti
Second Language Research, v27 n3 p418-430 Jul 2011
This review article presents a summary of research on the second language acquisition of Bantu languages, including Swahili, Zulu, Xhosa and Lingala. Although second language (L2) research on these languages is currently very limited, work in morphosyntax and phonology suggests promising directions for future study, particularly on noun class, tense and aspect.
