Abstract:

If languages influence the way we think, do bilinguals think differently in
their respective languages? And if languages do not affect thought, why do
bilinguals often perceive such influence? For many years these questions
remained unanswered because the research on language and thought had focused
solely on the monolingual mind. Bilinguals were either excluded from this
research as 'unusual' or 'messy' subjects, or treated as representative
speakers of their first languages. Only recently did bi- and multilinguals
become research participants in their own right. Pavlenko considers the
socio-political circumstances that led to the monolingual status quo and shows
how the invisibility of bilingual participants compromised the validity and
reliability of findings in the study of language and cognition. She then
shifts attention to the bilingual turn in the field and examines its
contributions to the understanding of the human mind.
