This volume is a response both to the increasing interest in
multilingual phenomena and lexical issues in language learning. It is
of interest to scholars and graduate students interested in bi- and
multilingualism, second and multiple language acquisition, language
processing and language learning, mental lexicon, applied linguistics,
psycho- and neurolinguistics and language teaching.

Recent research on third language acquisition and trilingualism has
made clear that most multilingual studies actually deal with
vocabulary learning or the lexicon. So far books on the mental lexicon
have mainly been concerned with two languages in contact. This book is
unique because it explores the multilingual lexicon by providing
insights from research studies conducted in psycholinguistics, applied
linguistics and neurolinguistics. It goes beyond the use of two
languages and thus concentrates on a new and developing area in
linguistic research. The different perspectives included in this
volume provide a link to the mainstream work on the lexicon and
vocabulary acquisition and will stimulate further debate in these
areas and in the study of multilingualism.

Lingfield(s):	Applied Linguistics
