  3. Language and Literacy (RLE Linguistics C: Applied Linguistics)

    The Sociolinguistics of Reading and Writing

    By Michael Stubbs

  4. Language Processing in Bilinguals (RLE Linguistics C: Applied Linguistics)

    Psycholinguistic and Neuropsychological Perspectives

    By Jyotsna Vaid

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Linguistics

    For decades, bilingualism has resisted definition. If bilingualism is defined as habitual, fluent, correct and accent-free use of two languages, few individuals would qualify as bilinguals. A more viable approach may be to concede that ‘bilingual’ can be seen instead as a range of points on a...
