Bilingual Processing and Acquisition

Psycholinguistic and neurocognitive approaches to bilingualism/multilingualism and language acquisition continue to gain momentum and uncover valuable findings explaining how multiple languages are represented in and processed by the human mind. With these intensified scholarly efforts come thought-provoking inquiries, pioneering findings, and new research directions. The Bilingual Processing and Acquisition book series seeks to provide a unified home, unlike any other, for this enterprise by providing a single forum and home for the highest-quality monographs and collective volumes related to language processing issues among multilinguals and learners of non-native languages. These volumes are authoritative works in their areas and should not only interest researchers and scholars investigating psycholinguistic and neurocognitive approaches to bilingualism/multilingualism and language acquisition but also appeal to professional practitioners and advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

In an attempt to be as inclusive as possible, this book series aims to publish volumes that represent the various subfields pertaining to bilingual/multilingual processing and acquisition as demonstrated in current research trends. Some of topics covered may include but are not limited to: language acquisition in adults; language acquisition in children; language attrition (native and non-native); linguistic competence and performance; processing perspectives of interlanguage development; bimodal bilingualism; phonological processing; morphosyntactic processing; orthographic processing; lexical processing; processing perspectives of code-switching; language activation; language representation; language selection; language and inhibitory control; speech perception; language production; working memory; cognitive consequences of bilingualism/multilingualism; cognitive executive functioning; innovative methodologies; artificial intelligence; computational modelling; cross-linguistic interference; language disorders; neurolinguistic approaches to bilingualism/multilingualism; and neurological and cognitive issues in healthy and brain-damaged bilinguals/multilinguals.

Book proposals and inquiries can be e-mailed to Cornelis H.J. Vaes at: kees.vaes at benjamins.nl and CCed to Dr. John W. Schwieter at: jschwieter at wlu.ca.
