Overview

Researchers in Second Language Acquisition (SLA) have explored both linguistic and psychological factors like the age of the learner, the cross-linguistic effect occasioned by the differences/ similarities between the learner’s L1 and the target language, the amount of L2 input available to the learner, the L2 aptitude and motivation of the learner, lexical aspect and lexical saliency of verbal predicates etc. “Second Language Acquisition of Tense and Aspect: An Analysis of Acquisition of English Tense-aspect Morphology among Ibibio ESL Learners” provides succinct and approachable account of the facilitating effects of lexical aspect and lexical saliency of verbal predicates on acquisition and distribution of tense-aspect morphology in the interlanguage of Ibibio ESL learners.This book also provides a detailed and step-wise x-ray of the conventions and procedures involved in conducting quantitative research in second language acquisition while qualitative analysis is not entirely ignored. Written for students of linguistics, applied linguistics, second language acquisition, foreign language education, and TESOL, it is also recommended for students of psycholinguistics.
