In-Between Languages: Language Shift/Maintenance in Childhood Bilingualism.
Bolonyai, Agnes
International Journal of Bilingualism, v2 n1 p21-43 Mar 1998
Examines structural consequences of intensive language contact on simultaneous first language (L1) and second language (L2) child language development in an L2-dominant environment. Based on the assumption that structural processes in language contact are operating at and determined by abstract lexical structure, various structural configurations in bilingual speech are explained by three levels of abstract structure.
