Title: Cognitive Aspects of Bilingualism
Edited By: Istvan Kecskes
Liliana Albertazzi
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-5934-6
Description:

Cognitive-functional perspective on bilingualism.
Unexplored issues such as gender systems, synergic concepts, context and
task addressed.
Focus both on the structure and functioning of the bilingual cognitive system
Bidirectional influence between language channels through the common
underlying conceptual base.

This work has a uniquely cognitive-functional perspective on bi-lingualism.
This means that it makes a clear distinction between real world and
projected world. Information conveyed by language must be about the
projected world. Both the experimental results and the systematic claims in
this volume call for a weak form of whorfianism. The authors examine too
some relatively unexplored issues of bilingualism, such as, among others,
gender systems in the bilingual mind, synergic concepts, and ontological
categorization.
