Abstract:

Until recently, the history of debates about language and thought has been a
history of thinking of language in the singular. The purpose of this volume is to
reverse this trend and to begin unlocking the mysteries surrounding thinking and
speaking in bi- and multilingual speakers. If languages influence the way we
think, what happens to those who speak more than one language? And if they
do not, how can we explain the difficulties second language learners experience
in mapping new words and structures onto real-world referents? The contributors
to this volume put forth a novel approach to second language learning,
presenting it as a process that involves conceptual development and
restructuring, and not simply the mapping of new forms onto pre-existing
meanings.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
                            Language Acquisition
