Language attrition timeline - Annotated bibliography: This is a piece that I originally wrote as a Timeline for Language Teaching. The finished version had become far too long, and was cut substantially before going into print (it is to be published in April 2016, in Vol. 49(2)). I decided to include it in full here in the hope that it may be useful to you.
