The 4th International Symposium on Bilingualism was held from April 30 to
May 3, 2003, at Arizona State University. The proceedings includes 190
papers from the conference.
The papers in the ISB4 Proceedings examine bilingualism around the world,
discussing the nature and effects of bilingualism in individuals and
families, classrooms, communities, and countries. The authors come from a
wide range of fields: linguistics, education, psychology, sociology,
biology, medicine, and public policy. Topics include linguistic development
in bilingual children, codeswitching, language policy and ideology,
bilingualism and the brain, language impairments, sociolinguistic studies
of bilingual communities and migration, language shift and attrition,
second language acquisition among children and adults, bilingualism in
school settings, and much more.
The CD-ROM contains the entire proceedings in PDF format, so you can easily

read. The proceedings is also available as a 5-volume set in library
binding. The papers are identical in both editions.
