Studies of Fossilization in Second Language Acquisition

Main Article Content

Rosette Bambino Finneran


Having systematically examined and evaluated nearly 30 years of research on fossilization in her 2004 volume, Fossilization in Adult Second Language Acquisition, ZhaoHong Han, along with co-editor Terrence Odlin, now explores the more current fossilization literature in its sequel, Studies of Fossilization in Second Language Acquisition. One might argue that Han and Odlin have taken on an even greater challenge here, as it is no small feat to bring together such a wide variety of perspectives in a volume that is at once integrated and even-handed. That they succeed is no surprise to anyone familiar with their work.
