Between them they have written and edited over one hundred books and two hundred academic papers in the broad field of applied linguistics.
Professor Christopher N. We are grateful to our students in our various bilingualism classes, both in Australia and in Singapore, who provided us with insights, suggestions and most of all, the impetus to write this book. We are also indebted to the many colleagues and friends who have shared with us their thoughts and experiences on the topics of bilingualism, as well as the challenges of writing a book.
In particular, we would like to express our gratitude to Michael Clyne, Madalena Cruz-Ferreira and Ben Buckland who read and commented extensively on the final draft and gave so generously of their time and effort. Their comments helped us sharpen our focus and clarified many ideas and we can't thank them enough. Naturally, any shortcomings are our responsibility alone. Finally we would both like to thank our families who patiently provided encouragement and support during the writing process.

Bilingualism : an advanced resource book
Swain and S. Aarts and L. Reprinted from F. Genesee and R. Copyright , with permission of Elsevier. Wherever possible, we have focused on both psychological and sociological explanations of bilingualism. Although it has not been possible to include all facets of the myriad of issues related to bilingualism, we have identified seven main areas which we believe are good departure points for readers interested in this area of study.
As with all the books in the Routledge Applied Linguistics series, this book consists of three sections: Introduction, Extension and Exploration. We attend to this by focusing on the analysis of the methodologies and interpretations of the data and research. We believe that careful understanding of the research is necessary before readers can make informed judgements about the research conclusions reached.
Throughout this section, we also include reflective tasks and activities which encourage readers to participate actively in forming opinions about the conceptual definitions introduced.
