Foundations of Bilingual Memory Summary

Foundations of Bilingual Memory by Roberto R. Heredia

Foundations of Bilingual Memory provides a valuable update to the field of bilingual memory and offers a new psychological perspective on how the bilingual mind encodes, stores, and retrieves information. This volume emphasizes theoretical issues, such as classic memory approaches, Compound-Coordinate Bilingualism, Bilingual Dual Coding Theory, and Working Memory, about which relatively little has been written in the bilingual domain. Also covered are:

* The neuropsychology of bilingual memory

* Applied issues (such as false memories and bilingualism, emotion and memory)

* Empirical findings in support of the uniqueness of the different memory systems of the bilingual individual

* Connectionist models of bilingualism

The volume represents the first book of its kind, in stressing a memory perspective with regards to bilingual speakers. It can serve as an advanced text for both undergraduate and graduate level students and it will be of great interest to the growing number of bilingual teachers and university classes interested in understanding the bilingual mind, as well as in preparing teachers to work with the bilingual individual.

Foundations of Bilingual Memory Reviews

As a follow up to the 2008 publication, An introduction to bilingualism: Principles and processes, the editors, Roberto R. Heredia and Jeanette Altarriba, have published this volume, which focuses more on the theoretical issues of bilingual memory and provides a broad panorama of the major research areas of bilingual storage, encoding, and retrieval. With contributions by 20 leading scholars from across the globe, this publication constitutes an up-to-date and welcome addition to the field of bilingualism and should be of interest to graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and scholars engaged in this area...[Foundations of Billingual Memory] is a very timely volume that provides us with theoretical issues concerning bilingual memory and language processing; it will move us to further our understanding of memory and language processing in the bilingual domain.
