When I first began learning Polish in the early 70's (in Poland), I took a trip to Germany (with fair German and so-so Spanish already implanted). While in Germany, I met a Spanish professor and tried to haul out the tongue only to find it full of Polish. Not a trace of Polish in my German however. Does anyone out there have any references to any studies on the influence of 2nd, 3rd, 4th langauges on 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc... languages?
