Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism (LAB)

2nd Call for papers for Special Issue: 'Language Impairment in Bilingual

Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism (LAB) is planning a Special Issue on
'Language Impairment in Bilingual Children' edited by Theo Marinis and Sharon
Armon-Lotem and scheduled for publication in 2016. This special issue
addresses language impairment in bilingual and multilingual children. Current
research has focused predominantly on the morphosyntactic and vocabulary
abilities of bilingual children, but studies on other domains of language are
limited. This special issue aims at bridging this gap by including studies
comparing bilingual children with typical language development and those with
Language Impairment addressing one or more of the following factors:

-Domains of language: phonology, vocabulary, morphosyntax, semantics,
-Modality (comprehension vs. production);
-Narrative development (macro- vs. microstructure);
-Effects of L1 and L2 properties;
-Effect of age, AoO, LoE;
-Effect of SES and bilingualism type (e.g., simultaneous, sequential,
minority, majority);
-Executive functions.

Manuscripts will be submitted directly to Linguistics Approaches to
The word limit for each paper is 8,000 words. All papers will be reviewed
