Inhaltsangabe: How do children develop bilingual competence? Do bilingual children develop language in the same way as monolinguals? Set in the context of findings on language development, this book examines the acquisition of English and Spanish by two brothers in the first six years of their lives.
'Written with love, sophistication and erudition, this impressively informative longitudinal study of Silva-Corvalán's two grandchildren will become a crucial link in our current understanding of early bilingual acquisition, of key features of Spanish and of the acquisition of Spanish as a heritage language in the United States.' Silvina Montrul, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
'The case study approach is a real success in bringing together theory and empirical data. The richness of the findings comes alive in Silva-Corvalán's painstakingly detailed analysis.' Ludovica Serratrice, University of Manchester
