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 andin 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, andeducators who wish to better understand the cognitive basis of bilingualism and the logic of experimental and formal approaches to language science.

Editorial Reviews

"Kroll and de Groot have been two of the most prolific and influential researchers in the psycholinguistic investigation of bilingualism. In this book, they have brought together a truly impressive group of researchers. As the editors note, studies of bilingualism from a cognitive-scienceperspective have exploded in the last decade, as scientists have come to appreciate how normal bilingual language use is. Thus, the cutting-edge work presented in this collection should be of great interest to anyone who is looking for a better understanding of human language, and of cognition morebroadly." --Arthur Samuel, Professor of Psychology, SUNY Stony Brook
