    schema:reviewBody ""For years, different disciplines have been studying various aspects of bilingualism, yet these groups have not often communicated with one another. This has resulted in lost opportunities to move the field of bilingualism forward. Many linguists have expressed a real need for a new textbook with a psychological perspective that introduces undergraduates and graduate students to the principles and processes of bilingualism as well as to the full scope of the field. This is that unifying textbook." "An Introduction to Bilingualism: Principles and Processes not only examines the relevant theoretical issues of the cognitive, developmental, and sociopsychological domains, but the applied ones as well, such as preparing teachers of foreign languages. Empirical evidence is cited in support of the theory. The individual chapters of this volume are written by experts in their subspecialty fields. To ensure a consistent, cohesive presentation, each chapter follows the same level, style, and pedagogical structure."--Jacket." ;
