LING 343. Bilingualism. 3 Hours S.

This course provides an introduction to bilingualism and bilingual education exploring the linguistic, sociolinguistic, and psycholinguistic aspects of bilingualism. We read about and discuss bilingualism in the world and in the U.S.; language maintenance and language loss; effects of languages in contact; bilingual acquisition; the cognitive advantages of bilingualism; and the processing of language in the multilingual mind. Students are guided in conducting a small research project on one of these areas, learning how to read scientific studies about bilingualism and developing an understanding of the relationship between primary research sources and the popular press.
