An Introduction to Bilingualism: Principles and Processes, Second Edition
2There is no doubting the notion that interest in bilingual and multilingual studies has increased since the publication of the first edition of the current volume, An Introduction to Bilingualism: Principles and Processes. The field has seen a steady increase in submissions of quality articles on this topic to such venues as the International Journal of Bilingualism, Multilingual and Multicultural Development, and Bilingualism: Language and Cognition. Further, participation in scholarly venues that include research in this field such as the International Symposium on Bilingualism (ISB; now in its 11th year, meeting biennially), the American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL), International Association of Applied Linguistics (AILA), and The Mental Lexicon conference, just to name a few, has increased in recent years. Thus, the motivation to learn more and write more about how bilingual speakers encode, store, and retrieve information has increased over the past 10 years. For this reason, the present volume attempts to present an update of research in the field and a review of some of the newer aspects of the field both from a theoretical perspective and from an applied or practical perspective, as well.
