Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: The Bilingual Mind
Subtitle: Thinking, Feeling and Speaking in Two Languages
Written By: Rafael Art Javier
Series Title: Cognition and Language: A Series in Psycholinguistics

As bilingual individuals enter the educational system and the clinical
landscape, they struggle with intricate, often painful questions of
identity, culture, and assimilation. Professionals working with these
individuals need to complement their knowledge of specific cultural issues
with the psychological processes that all bilingual speakers share. The
Bilingual Mind: Thinking, Feeling, and Speaking in Two Languages fills a
critical gap in the cross-cultural literature by illuminating the bilingual
experience in both its social and clinical contexts.
