How do production and comprehension processes interact in the bilingual brain during language interaction? Most experimental and theoretical research in psycholinguistics to date has focused on investigating the mechanisms that underlie language production and language comprehension separately. Only recently have researchers started emphasizing the importance of reconciling the two modalities into a unified account through the investigation of possible connections between the two systems. Authored by key researchers in psycholinguistics, neuroscience, and language development, this volume encompasses state of the art research on the relation between production and comprehension processes in bilingual children and adults. Articles highlight the most recent methodological approaches, as well as a variety of language pairs and linguistic structures. Indispensable for students and researchers working in the areas of language acquisition and processing, neurolinguistics, and experimental linguistics, this volume will also appeal to educators and clinicians focusing on language development and processing in multilingual children and adults. Originally published as special issue of Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 9:4/5 (2019).

Table of Contents
“This volume, which is co-edited by four leading international specialists, is an extremely important contribution to the field of adult and child bilingual acquisition. It is a collection of recent studies of psycholinguistic approaches to production and comprehension in bilingualism, and is a valuable source of information for those who are working in the field with respect to the theoretical and methodological issues of bilingualism research, and the perceptive and productive skills of adult and child bilinguals. This book provides frameworks for understanding bilingualism based on diverse topics and analyses. Each chapter presents a different study with a relevant literature review, the research design and the methodology, with a focus on a specific linguistic phenomenon and language combination, a data analysis and an interpretation. The book is ideal for students of (psycho)linguistics, second language acquisition and bilingualism, as well as for experts and researchers wishing to update their knowledge regarding psycholinguistic approaches to bilingualism.”
