Please contact if you are interested in
presenting a paper at this colloquium.

The focus of this colloquium will be on methodological issues when
comparing different measures of language proficiency across languages
with structural differences. Many studies on bilingual language
proficiency focus only on one language. This is a serious
methodological flaw since the complexity of bilingual proficiency is
not taken into account. The proposed colloquium will bring together
researcher who will contribute towards a better understanding of what
Grosjean (1997: 165) has called the complementarity principle: the
fact that bilinguals use their languages for different purposes and in
different domains of life. Therefore both languages have to be taken
into account. However, research on immigrant bilinguals in Europe face
the challenge that the language pairs under investigation show large
structural differences in many cases (e.g. French/ Arabic, Dutch/
Turkish, Russian/German and other pairs). How can we make sure that
the measures of proficiency in these language pairs are comparable?
We invite contributions of researchers who address this problem in
their work, be it within quantitative or qualitative research
