Abstract:

This volume is the outcome of 25 years of research into the
neurolinguistic aspects of bilingualism. In addition to reviewing the
world literature and providing a state-of-the-art account, including a
critical assessment of the bilingual neuroimaging studies, it proposes
a set of hypotheses about the representation, organization and
processing of two or more languages in one brain. It investigates the
impact of the various manners of acquisition and use of each language
on the extent of involvement of basic cerebral functional
mechanisms. The effects of pathology as a means to understanding the
normal functioning of verbal communication processes in the bilingual
and multilingual brain are explored and compared with data from
neuroimaging studies. In addition to its obvious research benefits,
the clinical and social reasons for assessment of bilingual aphasia
with a measuring instrument that is linguistically and culturally
equivalent in each of a patient's languages are stressed. The
relationship between language and thought in bilinguals is examined in
the light of evidence from pathology. The proposed linguistic theory
of bilingualism integrates a neurofunctional model (the components of
verbal communication and their relationships: implicit linguistic
competence, metalinguistic knowledge, pragmatics, and motivation) and
a set of hypotheses about language processing (neurofunctional
modularity, the activation threshold, the language/cognition
distinction, and the direct access hypothesis).
