Book Information


Title: Language and Aging in Multilingual Contexts
Written By: Kees de Bot
Sinfree Makoni
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

In this book different aspects of language and aging are discussed. While
language spoken by and language spoken with elderly people have been
treated as different areas of research, it is argued here that from a
dynamical system perspective the two are closely interrelated. In addition
to overviews of research on language and aging, a number of projects on
this topic in multilingual settings are presented.
