By A Customer on July 20, 2000
Format: Paperback
As the title suggests this book is aimed at those interested in the aquisition of vocabulary in a second language. Readership is probably more aimed at academics, researchers, advanced students, and teachers who have a more than a superficial knowledge of this area. The books has up to date chapters from some of leading L2 vocabulary researchers and very helpful commentary from the editors. It is likely that some chapters will be of more interest to individuals than others, as often is the case with edited volumes. Buy it !
