This fascinating volume presents a comprehensive view of the research in the field by bringing together essays by leading scholars from Cyprus, Hong Kong, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Turkey, the United Kingdom; and the United States. Divided into four sections - on writing and translation, diglossia, second language acquisition, and pragmatics - this collection will be an invaluable resource for language teachers and students of applied linguistics alike, and for anyone interested in second language acquisition."--Jacket."@en ;
