Title: Modeling Bilingualism
Subtitle: From Structure to Chaos. In Honor of Kees de Bot
Edited By: Monika S Schmid
Wander Lowie
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiBil%2043
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism 43
Description:

This volume presents an overview of changes in paradigms, perspectives and
contexts of research into bilingual development over the past two decades.
During this time, the focus of perspective has changed. In the early 1990s, most
investigations still proceeded from models that assumed modular components,
hierarchical relationships and linear processes, and investigated what were
perceived to be the ‘typical’ contexts of bilingual development (sequential,
usually instructed bilingualism, where the second language would remain the
weaker one and the speakers investigated were typically young adults). More
recently it has been proposed that such models may not be complex enough to
accommodate bilingual development in all its facets and settings (bimodal
bilingualism, attrition, aging). This change has recently culminated in
applications of chaos theory to Applied Linguistics, and in the widening range of
situations of language acquisition, learning and deterioration which have been
investigated.
