Bialystok, Ellen : York University

"A fascinating and valuable contribution to our understanding of language, mind, and society."
--Steven Pinker author of The Language Instinct
"This is a wonderfully written, comprehensive review about second-language aquisition. Second-language learning is viewed from diverse theoretical and real-world perspectives-second languages in cultural context, second-language learning and individual development, second-language learning and the brain, and others. The material discussed in this book is sophisticated and broad-ranging but very accessible and entertaining."
--Fred Genesee Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages
"When two highly respected and experienced scholars like Ellen Bialystok and Kenji Hakuta team up as authors, we can expect a perceptive, readable, and forward-looking book. In Other Words does not disappoint us. The book will be illuminating for the curious, while providing an informative synthesis for those more familiar with the field."
--Wilga M. Rivers Romance Languages and Literatures, Harvard University
"A comprehensive theory of second-language acquisition must engage the full range of social-science theory. The authors do this eloquently and comprehensively. They inform, debate, and engage....This book is a must read."
--Eugene E. Garcia Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs, United States Department of Education
