2already in the late 60s (Kloss, 1966) 2 , is connected to the process of first language ‘attrition’. We will start from this phenomenon to proceed then into the exploration of the effects of the L2 on the L1 when both languages are actively used and their influence is as much as possible reciprocal. For this situation to occur certain premises have to be considered. We will then analyze the linguistic features involved in the reverse exchange as they have been analyzed by previous studies, such as the heterogeneous research on the effects of the L2 on the L1 collected by Cook (2003). To prove that the learning of a second language affects the overall linguistic system of an individual, thus affecting also his L1, we will proceed to introducing a study. Testing Italian monolingual and multilingual speakers, whose L2 is English, we will demonstrate how their L1 diverges in several aspects. Whether directly or indirectly proceeding from the learning of a second language, these differences will strengthen the importance of further research on the influence of the second language on the first, a phenomenon that has still something to teach us. 2 KLOSS, H.
