Abstract:

This book is an authoritative account of multilingualism in the present era, aphenomenon affecting a vast number of communities, thousands oflanguages and millions of language users. The book's focus is specifically onthe knowledge and use of multiple languages, but its treatment of the topic isvery wide-ranging. It deals with both bilingualism and polyglottism, at thelevel of the individual speaker as well as at the societal level. The volumeaddresses not only linguistic facets of multilingualism but alsomultilingualism's cultural, sociological, educational, and psychologicaldimensions, moving from classic perspectives to recent and emergingdirections of interest. The book's extensive coverage takes in topics rangingfrom the 'new linguistic dispensation' in our globalized world to childdevelopment in multilingual environments, from the classification ofmultilingual groupings to characteristics of the multilingual mind. This breadthmakes "Multilingualism" an ideal advanced textbook for undergraduate andpostgraduate students in the areas of linguistics, education and the socialsciences.
