This book examines the simultaneous acquisition of Norwegian and English by two first-born children each with one American and one Norwegian parent. Lanza investigates the issue of language mixing in relation to language dominance and the children's differentiation between the two languages in relation to the communicative demands of the context. This new paperback edition contains an extensive updated bibliography.
