The bilingual brain : and what it tells us about the science of language

Costa, Albert2019
Books
What exactly does it mean for two languages to coexist in the same brain? How do babies exposed to different languages differentiate between them? And how does cognitive decline affect the two languages? Bilingualism is quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception as more than half of the world's population is able to communicate in more than one language. In The Bilingual Brain, leading expert Albert Costa guides us through the latest research exploring the many fascinating questions raised by bilingualism: from how children exposed to two different languages determine between them to how it influences our decisions. Filled with memorable examples from cutting-edge studies, The Bilingual Brain shows that bilingualism can help us better understand how language works.
