Review by ARICANA
This book presents an authoritative overview of research in interlanguage phonology. Collected from a wide range of sources, both classic articles and previously unpublished articles summarize current work and provide new directions for future research. Major issues in phonology such as language transfer, developmental trends and markedness are addressed from different perspectives supported by empirical data. Well-integrated, each section is preceded by an introduction which provides an overview of the material covered.
