The main factors which account for the rapid vocabulary growth to early school age English children are context and word-formation knowledge. Using empirical research, the book puts side by side L1 and L2 acquisition of word-formation devices. First chapter explores the early acquisition of word-formation devices by English children, and presents the principles through which cross-linguistic influence diverts L2 learners from the natural way of acquiring word-formation devices of their target language. It also presents the 'Dual Semantic Transparency' Hypothesis in L2 acquisition. The second and third chapters utilize empirical evidences in examining the advanced acquisition of word-formation devices by both native speakers and L2 learners, as well as highlight the points in which morphological cross-linguistic transfer is more evident to L2 learners. The fourth chapter offers suggestions over the way L2 learners' knowledge of word-formation devices of their target language can be improved. The book is targeted to anyone interested in language acquisition.
