SPECIAL ISSUE ON INDIGENOUS LANGUAGE BILINGUALISM

Guest Editor: Norbert Francis, Northern Arizona University

FOCUS

Manuscripts are being requested for the upcoming special issue of the
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism on
Indigenous Language Bilingualism. The focus of the special issue will
be on research reports from field studies of bilingualism and language
learning, aspects of language use and language competence, and
research applied to both educational contexts and language development
in general involving indigenous language communities and indigenous
cultures. Papers should be reports on an actual empirical study, or a
theoretical discussion or review of literature that references
empirical work in the field. A broad range of theoretical and
methodological approaches is to be included, from: educational
linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, anthropological
studies of language and education, and work from experimental,
controlled-descriptive, and ethnographic approaches. Aspects of
language development and language use focused on either the indigenous
language or the national language or both, children and/or adults, in
school and/or extracurricular-community settings are being solicited.

SUGGESTED TOPICS
Reports, reviews, and discussions related to the study of indigenous
languages from the following areas of research are especially welcome:

-Literacy learning (indigenous language and/or national language)
-Written language, writing systems
-Oral tradition
-Narrative development
-Analysis of narrative, ceremonial, poetic, pedagogic, oral history
genres
-Second language learning of indigenous and/or national languages
-Language preservation/revitalization
-First or second language attrition, language shift
-Bilingual instructional models, indigenous languages in content area
teaching
-Classroom interaction, academic achievement
-Cross-cultural communication, discourse analysis
-Development of pragmatic knowledge
-Grammatical aspects of bilingual development (phonology, morphology,
syntax, semantics)
-Bilingualism and cognition, metalinguistic awareness<br>
-Early childhood bilingualism, L1 acquisition of indigenous
languages
-Intergenerational transmission
-Late L2 learning of indigenous languages
-Research methodology, language assessment
-Codeswitching, borrowing, mixing
-Crosslinguistic influence, transfer, language processing
-Language variation, language change
