Subject:  Threshold Hypothesis

I am working on a MA thesis about Jim Cummins and his influential
threshold hypothesis in relation to the notion of semilingualism of
migrant children which still seems to be of interest in the field of
bilingual education. I am interested in recent (past three years or
so) studies on Cummins' hypothesis - either confirming his framework
and conclusions or rejecting it. Until now, I am aware of the critical
work of J. MacSwan, A. Hawson and M. Takakuwa. Did I miss some
important critics? And is anybody aware of recent research confirming
the threshold hypothesis? I'd also be interested in studies or
research being done on this topic in a specific German context. Thanks
a lot and of course, I'll post a summary.

Thanks in advance.
