Bilingual Sentence Processing provides an overview of the literature
on bilingual sentence processing from a psycholinguistic and
linguistic perspective. The editors have chosen noted researchers in
the field of bilingual language processing. Research focuses on both
the visual and spoken modalities including specific areas of research
interest including an integrated review of methods and the utility of
those methods which allows readers to have the appropriate background
and context for the chapters that follow. Next, issues surrounding
acquisition and pragmatic usage are covered with a focus on
code-switching and the actual parsing of sentence material both within
and between languages. Third, issues regarding memory, placing
language in a broader context, are explored as the connection between
language, memory, and perception is reviewed for bilingual speakers.
Finally, all of this work has direct implications for educational
settings-specifically issues surrounding the assessment of
proficiency, the development and nature of dominance, and the
acquisition of reading skills and reading comprehension for bilingual
speakers.
