On the contrary, I'm finding a variety of treatments... for example:
De Guerrero, M. C. M. (2006). Inner speech-L2: Thinking words in a second language. Springer.
McCafferty, S. G. (1998). Nonverbal Expression and L2 Private Speech. Applied Linguistics, 19(1), 73-96.
As I mentioned in my first message in this thread I find SC studies of L2 inner speech an interesting topic, because it is exploring the way that L2 can enter - and transform? - the higher psychological functions. As a native English speaker living and working in a country in which Spanish is the dominant language, I am very aware that my higher psychological functions are not as adequate when I'm using Spanish as they are when I use English, but also that the balance is changing. It's one thing (though difficult!) to *speak* fluently in a second language, it's another to *think* fluently in that language. So this seems to me where the SC approach to L2 is exploring something new.
