Metalinguistic Awareness in Multilinguals: Cognitive Aspects of Third Language Learning.

Discusses the role of metalinguistic awareness in multilinguals within the framework of a systems-theoretic approach to multilingual proficiency. Data from trilingual adults on their use of certain problem-solving behavior in think-aloud protocols during the academic writing process are shown to provide evidence of certain processes taking place while performing in a third language.
