Title: Bilingual First Language Acquisition
Written By: Annick De Houwer
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691484
Series Title: MM Textbooks
Description:

Increasingly, children grow up hearing two languages from birth. This
comprehensive textbook explains how children learn to understand and speak
those languages. It brings together both established knowledge and the
latest findings about different areas of bilingual language development. It
also includes new analyses of previously published materials. The book
describes how bilingually raised children learn to understand and use
sounds, words and sentences in two languages. A recurrent theme is the
large degree of variation between bilingual children. This variation in how
children develop bilingually reflects the variation in their language
learning environments. Positive attitudes from the people in bilingual
children's language learning environments and their recognition that child
bilingualism is not monolingualism-times-two are the main ingredients
ensuring that children grow up to be happy and expert speakers of two
languages.
