Endri Shqerra

Author Endri Shqerraabout this book: Suffixes and prefixes are the main tool native children use in enlarging their vocabulary and they acquire the essential knowledge needed in using them at an early age.

Such passive vocabulary growth is of great interest in Second Language Acquisition. Furthermore, reaching a native-like proficiency in the second language means that the second language learner possesses the same knowledge of affixes as native speakers do.

How do native speakers and second language learners acquire such knowledge? Do they acquire it in the same way? The book treats in details the way native speakers and second language learners acquire affixes' knowledge and clearly explains the role the first language (cross-linguistic influence) plays in the acquisition of L2 affixes' knowledge.

The last chapter focuses on the way L2 learners' acquisition of word formation devices can be improved, and gives advices which also help language learners in reaching a native-like proficiency in their target language.

The primary readers of this book are the Linguists and those interested in second language acquisition. The tests used in this book may well serve as good exercises for second language learners.
