Request: I am writing a paper on the topic of Bilingual Aphasia. I plan to
focus specifically on how studies in this field relate to the question of
how two (or more) language systems are organized within the brain. I am
seeking the following information: 
1) recent studies conducted/being conducted in this area 
2) recent (or not so recent, as long as relevant to current study)
journal/newspaper articles, books, other writings 
3) any other related information and/or sources of information which may be
helpful. Please include citation information and/or a contact person or
organization (email is best). Thank you for your assistance!

Thank you.

Dear Linguists,

I'm interested in the origins and use of the term "functional load". Any
information and/or pointers to sources would be appreciated.
