Qs: Subjects Needed: Late Bilingualism and Aging Study
Editor for this issue: Zac Smith
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

For a four-year research project on the language reversion among
elderly Dutch migrants (a line of research very much started by Michael
Clyne and Kees de Bot) we are currently looking for native English-
speaking subjects to serve as a control group. Apart from investigating
first language reversion, this project also aims to examine whether late
bilinguals can attenuate some of the general cognitive decline that
often accompanies advanced age (a continuation of Ellen Bialystok's
work, but this time focusing on late rather than early bilinguals). We are
happy to accept anyone between 35 and 100 years old, but are
especially recruiting elderly subjects (older than 60 and 75 years).
Should you know anyone (either professonally or personally) who
might be interested in this project, please contact the principal
investigator (Merel Keijzer) at M.C.J. Keijzeruu.nl. Testing ideally
takes place at Monash University Clayton Campus, but can also be
done on location if that is more convenient. Each session lasts about
1.5 hours max and subjects are given 20 dollars for their time and
effort. A more elaborate description of the project can be found on the
following website: http://www.uu.nl/hum/staff/MKeijzer
