A Bilingual Child's Struggle to Comply with the "One-Parent-One-Language" Rule.
Dopke, Susanne
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v13 n6 p467-85 1992
A study based on monthly recordings of one bilingual child exposed to English and German suggests that, contrary to earlier research, the acquisition of sociolinguistic rules appears to precede the acquisition of structural rules. The assumption that linguistic sophistication is necessary for children to understand that they are exposed to two different languages is questioned. (24 references) (Author/LB)
