This book helps speech-language pathologists and general educators differentiate between errors that are related to second-language influence and errors that are due to a communication disorder. The framework used can improve instructional targets for culturally and linguistically diverse students in the general education classroom and can help with making appropriate referrals for special education evaluations.
 
The book showcases the many linguistic similarities and differences between English and 13 other languages and dialects. Arabic, Czech, Farsi, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese are included, as well as a section on African American English dialect.
 
Each language chapter includes the following:
  • General information about the language, including where it is spoken
  • Developmental information
  • Similarities and differences in comparison to English
  • Research references
