The chapters in this volume provide the first comprehensive overview of trends in research on early phonological, lexical, syntactic and pragmatic development in children acquiring two (or more) languages simultaneously. Ongoing as well as emerging issues are examined and discussed by leading researchers in the field. Collectively, these studies extend our knowledge of bilingual acquisition and broaden our understanding of the child's ability to acquire and use language. This volume is of interest to researchers working on language acquisition by monolingual and bilingual children, graduate students of psychology, linguistics and communication sciences, and researchers and professionals concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of bilingual children with language impairment.

“In this collection of articles from the VIIIth International Congress for the Study of Child Language, the editors present us with a feast of some of the leading research in bilingual acquisition. The perspective is multidisciplinary, and includes several pioneering approaches which will doubtless stimulate further research. A central theme is language differentiation, which is considered in a novel and interesting way in relation to topics as diverse as babbling, morphological and syntactic development, trilingualism and the role of the input.”
“This collection of papers has done an admirable job of presenting the current state of research on bilingual acquisition and should be welcomed by those interested in language acquisition.”
“It is to be hoped that readers of this collection will be as numerous and as enthusiastic as the high quality of this volume demands. The more volumes like this one, the better.”
