Academic Paper


Title: We can no longer afford a monolingual norm
Author: Barbara Zurer-Pearson
Institution: University of Massachusetts
Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition
Abstract: In her Keynote Article, Johanne Paradis does a service for the research and the clinical communities with this comprehensive review of the literature encompassing bilingualism and specific language impairment (SLI). Her work and the work of her colleagues for more than a decade have been persistent in bringing these two threads together: using bilingual (BL) data to speak to theoretical issues and using research findings to inform clinical practice. I am not alone in my appreciation (and admiration) of her many contributions, which are nicely pulled together here and placed in better perspective than in the several articles that have presented much of the work in isolation.
