Clevedon:Multilingual Matters,2006Z13785862006anthology criticism "The goal of this volume is to highlight an affective dimension of the bi-/multilingual experience and to place emotion on a par with cognition in investigations of bilingual minds. Opening up a new field, the contributors ask several novel and provocative questions. To answer these and related questions, the contributors employ both quantitative and qualitative approaches and draw on advances in sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, psychology, neurolinguistics, and literary criticism. This book will be of great interest not only to scholars in the fields of bilingualism and second language acquisition, but also to all who live their lives through the means of more than one language."--BOOK JACKET.Clevedon:Multilingual Matters,2006
