Elective course: Bilingualism

Multilingual child
Prof. Sharon Armon-Lotem

In a world in which over half of the children are bilingual or multilingual, better understanding of the developmental, linguistic, and societal aspects of bilingualism in children, is of a great interest. Bilingual acquisition is studied across language pairs, from psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic perspectives.

The course focuses on linguistic features of the home language and the societal language that are indicative of crosslinguistic interference including, but not limited to, code-switching.
