Editorial Change at Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism

John Benjamins Publishing Company announces a change in the editorship of the journal Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism as of Volume 5 (2015).

Sharon Unsworth (Radboud University Nijmegen) will succeed Roumyana Slabakova (University of Southampton and University of Iowa) as co-editor with Jason Rothman (University of Reading). Roumyana Slabakova will stay on as member of the editorial board.

Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism provides an outlet for cutting-edge, contemporary studies on bilingualism. LAB assumes a broad definition of bilingualism, including: adult L2 acquisition, simultaneous child bilingualism, child L2 acquisition, adult heritage speaker competence, L1 attrition in L2/Ln environments, and adult L3/Ln acquisition. LAB solicits high quality articles of original research assuming any cognitive science approach to understanding the mental representation of bilingual language competence and performance, including cognitive linguistics, emergentism/connectionism, generative theories, psycholinguistic and processing accounts, and covering typical and atypical populations.
