Abstract:

The concept of bilingualism has been analyzed for a very long time. Its
definitions range from native-like competence in two languages to a minimal
proficiency in a second language. Hence one might question why no consensus
has been reached in this matter. The authors of this volume imply that there
exists a number of theoretical and methodological difficulties raised by older
definitions. The notion of bilingualism has to be investigated from different
perspectives reflected by the dimensions each individual intends to diagnose.
The aim of the book is to review critically the state of the art in the field
of bilingualism. The volume reveals the details of empirical studies conducted
by scholars from Europe, America and Australia. It depicts a truly interesting
spectrum of research topics starting with the educational aspects of
bilingualism, such as: bilingual acquisition, bilingual parenting methods and
bilingual kindergartens, to reveal various issues of sociolinguistics and even
bilingual literature.
