How is language acquired when infants are exposed to multiple
language input from birth and when adults are required to learn a
second language after early childhood? How do adult bilinguals
comprehend and produce words and sentences when their two languages
are potentially always active and in competition with one another?
What are the neural mechanisms that underlie proficient bilingualism?
What are the general consequences of bilingualism for cognition and
for language and thought? This handbook will be essential reading for
cognitive psychologists, linguists, applied linguists, and educators
who wish to better understand the cognitive basis of bilingualism and
the logic of experimental and formal approaches to language science.
