Caron-Caldas, Suzanne; Caldas, Stephen J.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n3 p365-81 Sep 2000
This case study examines the shifting bilingual preference of three French/English bilingual children over a 3-year period. Clarifies terms used to refer to bilingual preference. The children's fluctuating bilingual preference was accounted for in terms of three contextual domains: home (predominantly French-speaking), school, and community (shifted from predominantly English-speaking Louisiana to French-speaking Quebec).
