Bilingual Is as Bilingual Does: Metalinguistic Abilities of Arabic-Speaking Children.
Eviatar, Zohar; Ibrahim, Raphiq
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n4 p451-71 Dec 2000
Explores the effects of the relationship between exposure to two languages in childhood and metalinguistic abilities. Arabic-speaking children who had been exposed to both spoken and literary Arabic were compared to Russian-Hebrew bilinguals and Hebrew monolinguals. Subjects were kindergarten students; they were tested on language arbitrariness, phonological awareness, and vocabulary. (Author/VWL)
