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

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