      Modeling of linguistic knowledge generally involves the
      compartmentalization of grammar into phonological, morphological,
      lexical, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic components. These
      components are not isolated but interacting components. It is the
      resulting interfaces between grammatical components that forms the
      main topic of this volume, discussed from the perspective of bilingual
      L1 acquisition in early childhood and L2 in adulthood, as well as
      L1/L2 in late childhood.

      The book contains ten contributions by members of the Research Center
      on Multilingualism at the University of Hamburg and by other
      international scholars, all of them experts on multilingualism.
      Several pairs of languages are dealt with, among them Spanish and
      German, Mandarin and English, French and German, Italian and German,
      Turkish and English, Turkish and German, Dutch and Turkish, as well as
      Spoken German and German Sign language. Throughout the volume the
      central issue is that of representation at the interface of
      grammatical components.
