Title: Multilingualism
Written By: Larissa Aronin
David M. Singleton
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/impact.30
Series Title: IMPACT: Studies in Language and Society 30
Description:

This book is an authoritative account of multilingualism in the present era, a
phenomenon affecting a vast number of communities, thousands of
languages and millions of language users. The book’s focus is specifically on
the knowledge and use of multiple languages, but its treatment of the topic is
very wide-ranging. It deals with both bilingualism and polyglottism, at the
level of the individual speaker as well as at the societal level. The volume
addresses not only linguistic facets of multilingualism but also
multilingualism’s cultural, sociological, educational, and psychological
dimensions, moving from classic perspectives to recent and emerging
directions of interest. The book’s extensive coverage takes in topics ranging
from the ‘new linguistic dispensation’ in our globalized world to child
development in multilingual environments, from the classification of
multilingual groupings to characteristics of the multilingual mind. This breadth
makes "Multilingualism" an ideal advanced textbook for undergraduate and
postgraduate students in the areas of linguistics, education and the social
sciences.
