Unbalanced Bilingual Acquisition as a Mechanism of Grammatical Change
Matthews, Stephen; Yip, Virginia
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v14 n2 p159-161 Apr 2011
Bilingual first language acquisition (BFLA) has been considered a possible mechanism of contact-induced change in several recent studies (Siegel, 2008, p. 117; Satterfield, 2005, p. 2075; Thomason, 2001, p. 148; Yip & Matthews, 2007, p.15). There is as yet little consensus on the question, with divergent views regarding both BFLA at the individual level and the implications for language change at the community level.
