Kupisch, Tanja; Mitrofanova, Natalia; Westergaard, Marit – Journal of Child Language, 2022
We investigate German-Russian bilingual children's sensitivity to formal and semantic cues when assigning gender to nouns in German. Across languages, young children have been shown to primarily rely on phonological cues, whereas sensitivity to semantic and syntactic cues increases with age. With its semi-transparent gender assignment system,…

Dominguez, Higinio – ZDM: Mathematics Education, 2021
This paper conceptualizes children's mathematical thinking from a materialist perspective on language and mathematics. This perspective considers human and non-human bodies as ontologically equivalent; that is, as both being agentive, vibrant, and animated, thus resisting static representations. This conceptualization is an alternative to the…

Although cross-linguistic influence at the level of morphosyntax is one of the most intensively studied topics in child bilingualism, the circumstances under which it occurs remain unclear. In this meta-analysis, we measured the effect size of cross-linguistic influence and systematically assessed its predictors in 750 simultaneous and early…

Laura Hamman-Ortiz, a language and literacy researcher, discusses Translanguaging, an emerging instructional theory that challenges traditional understandings of bilingualism view the different languages used by a student as distinct skill sets.
