This is a comprehensive collection of the classics in the study of bilingualism. Designed as a structured student reader, it covers:

  • definitions and typology of bilingualism
  • language choice and bilingual interaction
  • grammar of code-switching and bilingual acquisition
  • the bilingual brain and bilingual production and perception
  •  methodological issues in the study of bilingualism.


Invaluable editorial material guides the student through different sections of the reader. Critical discussion of research methods, graded study questions and activities, a comprehensive glossary and an up-to-date resource list make The Bilingualism Reader an essential introductory text for any course in bilingualism.

About the Author:

Li Wei is Professor of Applied Linguistics in the Department of Speech, and Director of the Centre for Research in Linguistics, at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. He is author of Three Generations Two Languages One Family (1994) and editor of the International Journal of Bilingualism.

Review:

Wei's edited volume provides a useful contribution to those seriously interested in the study of bilingualism because in a single volume it makes available some of the most important classic works..
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, Roy C. Major, Arizona State University

This book is clearly a bargain, and it is difficult to see how it could fail to become a core textbook for courses in bilingualism.
–Paul Meara, University of Wales Swansea, UK In System, 29: 3

This outstanding collection of the key articles in the field is an essential guide for incoming students and a wonderful resource for bilingualism scholars.
–Annotated Bibliography for English Studies
