One Mind, Two Languages surveys current research in language processing
-from both linguistic and psycholinguistic perspectives- in individuals
who speak more than one language. Such research bears on a broad range of
questions relating to whether language can shape thought and what it means
to be proficient in a language, as well as formal theories of linguistics
and language processing.

The volume focuses on how the multi-language user represents and
processes linguistic information. Chapters include an overview of
methodological issues in bilingual research, new empirical research,
and extensive summaries of relevant past work.

This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in
state-of-the-art research on the status of language processing in
