This volume is the first dedicated to the growing field of theory and research on second language processing and parsing. The fourteen papers in this volume offer cutting-edge research using a number of different languages (e.g., Arabic, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, English) and structures (e.g., relative clauses, wh-gaps, gender, number) to examine various issues in second language processing: first language influence, whether or not non-natives can achieve native-like processing, the roles of context and prosody, the effects of working memory, and others. The researchers include both established scholars and newer voices, all offering important insights into the factors that affect processing and parsing in a second language.

Table of Contents
“This volume represents a good collection of cutting-edge research papers on the contemporary topic of L2 processing and parsing.[...] This book is highly recommended to scholars in the field of second language acquisition and processing, especially psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics.”
“This collection of articles offers a fairly well-rounded view of current issues in L2 processing by considering a range of topics, target languages, and theoretical claims and would thus be a valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in L2 processing. Additionally, given its broad perspective and the inclusion of studies that support both sides of the current debates, this volume would make a good textbook for an introductory graduate level course on research in L2 processing.”
