Journal of Child Language, v28 n2 p453-96 Jun 2001
Studied the case of bilingual acquisition across two modalities to examine diverging hypotheses about the types of knowledge underlying early bilingualism. Three children acquiring Langues des Signes Quebecoise and French, and three children acquiring French and English were videotaped over a year while novel and familiar speakers of each child's two languages were empirically manipulated. Results are discussed. (Author/VWL)
