Über den Autor
François Grosjean is Professor Emeritus of Psycholinguistics at Neuchâtel University, Switzerland. His many publications on bilingualism include three books: Life with Two Languages: An Introduction to Bilingualism (1982), Studying Bilinguals (2008), and Bilingual: Life and Reality (2010). The latter was selected as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title. He is a Founding Editor of the journal Bilingualism: Language and Cognition and was its first Coordinating Editor.rnPing Li is Professor of Psychology, Linguistics, and Information Sciences and Technology at Pennsylvania State University. His books include The Handbook of East Asian Psycholinguistics: Volume 1, Chinese (co-edited with L-H. Tan, E. Bates, and O. Tzeng, 2006), and The Expression of Time (co-edited with W. Klein, 2009). He is Editor of the journal Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, and is on the Editorial Board of four other prominent journals.

The Psycholinguistics of Bilingualism presents a comprehensive introduction to the foundations of bilingualism, covering language processing, language acquisition, cognition and the bilingual brain.
* This thorough introduction to the psycholinguistics of bilingualism is accessible to non-specialists with little previous exposure to the field
* Introduces students to the methodological approaches currently employed in the field, including observation, experimentation, verbal and computational modelling, and brain imaging
* Examines spoken and written language processing, simultaneous and successive language acquisition, bilingual memory and cognitive effects, and neurolinguistic and neuro-computational models of the bilingual brain
* Written in an accessible style by two of the field's leading researchers, together with contributions from internationally-renowned scholars
* Featuring chapter-by-chapter research questions, this is an essential resource for those seeking insights into the bilingual mind and our current knowledge of the cognitive basis of bilingualism
