Abstract


de Groot states that, while there might be many journals and books that investigate bilingualism and multilingualism, existing books and journals are either too specific in scope, deal with only one topic, or are too detailed to qualify as an introduction. The book under review attempts to fill this gap by providing comprehensive information about language acquisition, language processing, and language production as the three main areas of research on bilingualism.
