Language and Reading Development of Bilinguals in the United States.
Garcia, Ricardo L.
This paper presents an overview of research on bilingual children's language and reading development, identifying the problems and biases of past research and indicating future research needs. The paper notes that past research tended to reflect prevailing societal attitudes and an essentially linguistic bias. In recommending future research priorities, the paper stresses the use of nonbehavioral science tools and miscue analysis for the description and analysis of semantic processes, sociolinguistic phenomena, and psycholinguistic phenomena. A bibliography is included. (RL)
