This is the first book that discusses the effect of foreign language learning on first language processing. The authors argue that multilingual development is a dynamic and cumulative process characterized by transfer of different nature, and results in a common underlying conceptual base with two or more language channels that constantly interact with each other. Language representation and processing are discussed from a cognitive-pragmatic rather than a lexical-syntactic perspective. This required the review of several crucial issues of L2 acquisition, such as transfer, vocabulary development, conceptual fluency, and pragmatic skills. The authors also reviewed a large body of literature touching on cognitive psychology, linguistics, psycholinguistics, SLA, philosophy, and education in order to explain multilingual development and the positive effect of foreign language learning on the first language. An important read for linguists and language educators alike, this volume: * attempts to explain multilingual development from a cognitive-pragmatic perspective, * argues that foreign language learning has a positive effect on the development and use of mother tongue skills, * relies on research findings of several different disciplines, * builds on the results of quantitative research conducted by the authors, and touches on a wide range of literature.

Language learning is a great fascination, especially the learning of a Foreign and or Second Language. Numerous studies have been carried out to establish factors that hinder and or promote language learning, among them First Language interference. The debate on Mother Tongue interference seem to have tied out, but this work rekindles it with a view of rethinking and understanding the role of Mother Tongue in learning English as a Second Language. This book presents findings on a study on First Language transfer and its implication on the teaching and learning of English as a Second Language. The study found out, among other issues, that the knowledge and structure of the First Language ought to foster the learning of the Second language. Language teachers ought to understand this in order to structure their lesson preparation and presentation. It is a must read for both teachers and students of English as a Second Language, as well as language course & learning material developers.

The study of native language influence in Second Language Acquisition has undergone significant changes over the past few decades. This book, which includes 12 chapters by distinguished researchers in the field of second language acquisition, traces the conceptual history of language transfer from its early role within a Contrastive Analysis framework to its current position within Universal Grammar. The introduction presents a continuum of thought starting from the late 70s, a time in which major rethinking in the field regarding the concept of language transfer was beginning to take place, and continuing through the present day in which language transfer is integrated within current concepts and theoretical models. The afterword unites the issues discussed and allows the reader to place these issues in the context of future research. For the present book, the 1983 edition has been thoroughly revised, and some papers have been replaced and added.

One of the most challenging issues within task-based approaches is considered to be the students’ use of the mother tongue. This term paper aims to examine how to deal with mother tongue use in a task-based classroom, how to encourage target language use and finally, how mother tongue use is compatible with task-based approaches

This volume offers fresh perspectives on a controversial issue in applied linguistics and language teaching by focusing on the use of the first language in communicative or immersion-type classrooms. It includes new work by both new and established scholars in educational scholarship, second language acquisition, and sociolinguistics, as well as in a variety of languages, countries, and educational contexts. Through its focus at the intersection of theory, practice, curriculum and policy, the book demands a reconceptualization of code-switching as something that both proficient and aspiring bilinguals do naturally, and as a practice that is inherently linked with bilingual code-switching.

This research investigates the influence of mother tongue (L1) in foreign language (FL) writing. The purpose of this study was to test two research questions: (1) what are students' attitudes toward the involvement of L1 writing strategies in FL writing; (2) Do students transfer L1 writing strategies to English writing positively or negatively? Why? This paper presents quantitative and qualitative research conducted with instruments such as: a questionnaire, four experiments and five writing strategies checklists. The paper has to do only with students whose mother tongue is Albanian. The participants involved in this study composed different genres of paragraphs in their L1 and FL. The findings suggest that students' attitudes toward the involvement of their L1 in FL writing were mostly negative. When asked to work on special tasks involving translation, these tasks were not preferred by these students compared to the direct mode. However, when writing directly in English, they often unconsciously reverted to (or were thinking in) Albanian. Thus making space for substratum transfer, which was both positive and negative.
