      This title announced on the Linguist list may be of interest, though
      its focus is on acquisition of a second language. At some point, if
      it has not already been done, it would be interesting to see a
      comparison of second language learners and multi/bilinguals learning
      (for the first time, prthaps in the context of literacy training) in
      one of their languages that had not previously been the medium of
      instruction. The differences are obvious, but perhaps points of
      comparison are worth studying. For instance, both involve a certain
      amount of unlearning or changing of paradigms about language. Both
      also involve reference to another language in the early parts of
      study. DZO
