New Co-editor for Studies in Bilingualism
John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce that Robert DeKeyser
(University of Maryland) has agreed to succeed Kees de Bot as co-editor of
Studies in Bilingualism.
Robert DeKeyser is Professor of Second Language Acquisition at the
University of Maryland at College Park. He has a Ph.D. in Education with a
minor in Linguistics from Stanford University. His research is on second
language acquisition, with emphasis on cognitive-psychological aspects.
Some of his favorite topics are interlanguage variability, monitoring
processes, automatization of second language grammar, the effect of age of
learning and other individual differences, the relationship between
implicit and explicit learning and knowledge, and psycholinguistic and
sociolinguistic aspects of bilingualism. He has published in a variety of
journals, including Language Learning, Studies in Second Language
Acquisition, Language Testing, The Modern Language Journal, TESOL
Quarterly, and AILA Review. Also among his publications is a book published
by Cambridge University Press, entitled ‘Practice in a second language:
Perspectives from Applied Linguistics and Cognitive Psychology’.
Robert DeKeyser (rdkumd.edu) will co-edit the Studies in Bilingualism
series together with Dalila Ayoun (ayounu.arizona.edu).

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
