Abstract:
			
This volume contributes to the debates about the social aspects of
bilingualism, focusing on the various opportunities and challenges
bilingualism presents to today's society. The contributions in this
volume are of a prospective stance, delineating directions for future
research on bilingualism and/or identifying important issues which
have been under-researched or which are still of a controversial
nature. All the contributions are from leading international scholars
who have researched and published extensively in the field of
bilingualism. To facilitate further discussions of the issues raised
in the volume, there are study questions and suggested reading
attached to each of the main chapters.Introduction: Opportunities and
