Overview

This innovative volume provides a state-of-the-art overview of the relationship between language and cognition with a focus on bilinguals. It brings together contributions from international leading figures in various disciplines and showcases contemporary research on the emerging area of bilingual cognition.

The first part of the volume discusses the relationship between language and cognition as studied in various disciplines, from psychology to philosophy to anthropology to linguistics, with chapters written by some of the major thinkers in each discipline. The second part concerns language and cognition in bilinguals. Following an introductory overview and contributions from established figures in the field, bilingual cognition researchers provide examples of their latest research on topics including time, space, motion, colors, and emotion. The third part discusses practical applications of the idea of bilingual cognition, such as marketing and translation.

The volume is essential reading for researchers and postgraduate students with an interest in language and cognition, or in bilingualism and second languages.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The present volume constitutes a comprehensive and outstanding contribution to the new and expanding field of language and bilingual cognition research. ... Due to the breath of the research areas that are covered and the quality of the chapters that are included, Language and Bilingual Cognition is an invaluable reference for those interested in cognition, bilingualism, and second language acquisition." – Teresa Cadierno, University of Southern Denmark, in International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

"The editors, Vivian Cook and Benedetta Bassetti, provide an impressive set of contributions addressing the connections between language and cognition. ... Language and Bilingual Cognition should be of interest to scholars of both language and cognition, even to those whose research areas do not directly address linguistic relativity. ... Readers who already have good backgrounds in linguistic relativity and bilingualism research will find this volume to be a valuable reference book." – David S. Kreiner in PsycCRITIQUES
