Abstract:

Language lies at the heart of the way we think, communicate and view the world. Most people on this planet are in some sense multilingual. The Multilingual Mind explores, within a processing perspective, how languages share space and interact in our minds. The mental architecture proposed in this volume permits research across many domains in cognitive science to be integrated and explored within one explanatory framework, recasting compatible insights and findings in terms of a common set of terms and concepts. The MOGUL framework has already proven effective for shedding light on the relationship between processing and learning, metalinguistic knowledge, consciousness, optionality, crosslinguistic influence, the initial state, 'UG access', ultimate attainment, input enhancement, and even language instruction. This groundbreaking work will be essential reading for linguists working in language acquisition, multilingualism, language processing and for those working in related areas of psychology, neurology and cognitive science.

"An immensely interesting treatment of the bilingual mind, full
of important ideas about the cognitive systems that support the acquisition
and use of language." --William O'Grady, Universit

"Sharwood Smith and Truscott present their long-awaited book-length treatment of the MOGUL framework, an approach to linguistic – and in particular bilingual and multilingual – development which reconciles approaches from various contemporary linguistic, psycholinguistic and cognitive domains. The result is thorough, convincing and highly readable and will, no doubt, leave its mark on research into language development for many years to come." --Monika S. Schmid, University of Essex/University of Groningen
