Summary
"Drawing on new studies of children exposed to two languages from birth (English and Cantonese), this book demonstrates how childhood bilingualism develops naturally in response to the two languages in the children's environment. The authors demonstrate significant interactions between the children's developing grammars, as well as the important role played by language dominance in their bilingual development."--BOOK JACKET
