Key features
- Papers in this volume are diverse in the depth of investigation and
topical variety and also in range of languages and geographical

The nine original papers in this volume have been written by
international experts and deal with individual bilingualism, societal
and educational phenomena, addressing issues such as bilingual usage,

multidisciplinary, including linguistics, sociolinguistics,
psychology, and applied linguistics.
