This volume is the outcome of the author's observations and puzzlement over
seventeen years of teaching English and French as second languages,
followed by 30 years of research into the neurolinguistic aspects of
bilingualism. It examines, within the framework of a neurolinguistic theory
of bilingualism (Paradis, 2004), the crucial and pervasive contributions
made by declarative and procedural memory to the appropriation,
representation and processing of a second language. This requires careful
consideration of a number of concepts associated with issues pertaining to
second language research: consciousness, interface, modularity,
automaticity, proficiency, accuracy, fluency, intake, ultimate attainment,
switching, implicit linguistic competence and explicit metalinguistic
knowledge. It is informed by data from a variety of domains, including
language pathology, neuroimaging, and, from each side of the fence,
practical classroom experience. This book introduces four further proposals
within the framework of a neurolinguistic theory of bilingualism: (1) There
are two sets of cerebral representations, those that are capable of
reaching consciousness and those that are not; implicit grammar is
inherently not capable of reaching consciousness. (2) The increased
activation observed in neuroimaging studies during the use of a second
language is not devoted to the processing of implicit linguistic
competence. (3) Intake is doubly implicit. (4) Given the premise that
metalinguistic knowledge cannot be converted into implicit competence,
there can be no possible interface between the two.
