    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book pioneers the study of bilingualism across the lifespan and in all its diverse forms. In framing the newest research within a lifespan perspective, the editors highlight the importance of considering an individual's age in researching how bilingualism affects language acquisition and cognitive development. A key theme is the variability among bilinguals, which may be due to a host of individual and sociocultural factors, including the degree to which bilingualism is valued within a particular context.Thus, this book is a call for language researchers, psychologists, and educators to pursue a better understanding of bilingualism in our increasingly global society.

    Reviews

    "Bilingualism Across the Lifespan is an important contribution to the growing literature on the bilingual experience. Compiling 16 chapters of solid literature review, editors Nicoladis and Montanari successfully present the case that bilingualism is not an aberration but rather is well within the normal range of human experience." David Ludden in PsycCRITIQUES
