In this blog, we discuss research findings on bilingualism (we consider bilingualism to be an umbrella term for multilingualism too).

As the blog progresses, we will examine fundamental issues such as how to define the term bilingualism; what it means to be bilingual; whether there are disadvantages and advantages associated with bilingualism; as well as more detailed findings from studies which have targeted specific bilingual individuals and communities.

We intend to relate research findings to “real-world” people who, one way or another, have two or more languages in their lives. Moreover, we’d like to tackle debates on bilingualism and how research findings can inform such debates.
