Terence Odlin reconsiders a question that many language teachers and educational researchers have addressed: How much influence can a learner's native language have in making the acquisition of a new language easy or difficult?

In addition, he provides a detailed look at work on other areas important for the study of transfer, including discourse, individual variation, and sociolinguistic factors.

Review:

"This book is packed with information gleaned from the author's comprehensive review of the literature on the long-controversial topic of language transfer....One need not be a linguist or psychologist to profit from reading the work, as it is written in a very readable, non-technical style, and a glossary is provided for the limited number of technical terms the author does use." Gordon L. Jackson, Polylingua
