Centre for Research on Bilingualism


Founded in 1988, the Centre for Research on Bilingualism serves as a basis for a wide range of theoretical and practical research designed to create a better understanding of bilingualism. Areas addressed include bilingualism in the family, bilingual education, Swedish as a second language for children and adults, second and foreign language teaching, interpreting and translation, language attrition in bilinguals, language maintenance and shift, language ideologies, minority language policies, and multilingualism and education in developing countries, thus covering sociolinguistic, pragmatic, psycholinguistic, cognitive and neurolinguistic aspects of bilingualism. The Centre is a cross-linguistic and interdisciplinary unit within the language section of the Faculty of Humanities at Stockholm University.
