Bilingualism - NZILBB -University of Canterbury


Most people in the world speak more than one language. The Bilingualism Theme focuses on aspects of the speech of bilinguals, from how knowledge of one language might influence the production of another, to the role of non-verbal cues in the production and perception of speakers.

The leader of the Bilingualism Theme is Professor Jeanette King.

Te Kāhui Kaihautū, the Māori reference group, advises on the research projects associated with NZILBB.
