How does our first language influence learning new ones? What gets moved over from the old languages to the new? This week on The Ling Space, we talk about transfer in second language acquisition: how we know that the foundation of our new language is the one we knew already, and what the effects are of having that old language knowledge around.

L2 acquisition is my favorite of all linguistics topics, so I’m very excited to hear what everyone has to say about it!
