Description and Measurement of Bilingualism: An International Seminar. University of Moncton, June 6-14, 1967.
Kelly, L. G., Ed.
This book contains papers and commentaries thereon from the International Seminar on the Description and Measurement of Bilingualism, which was attended by linguists, psychologists and sociologists representative of a wide range of scientific and intellectual insights. Topics covered are: (1) How and when do persons become bilingual? (2) How can one measure the extent of a person's bilingual proficiency? (3) How can we measure the effects which one language may have on the other in the speech of bilinguals? (4) How can we measure the roles which a bilingual's languages play in his everyday behavior? (5) How can we describe and measure the behavior of bilingual groups? (6) How can we describe and measure the incidence and distribution of bilingualism? Individual sections contain bibliographies pertinent to the topic covered in the section. Titles of section headings and prefatory and concluding materials are given in both French and English, but the greater part of the text is exclusively in English. (Author/FWB)
