Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


"COST Action IS0804 "Language Impairment in a Multilingual Society: Linguistic Patterns and the Road to Assessment" aimed to profile bilingual specific language impairment (biSLI) by establishing a network for research on the linguistic and cognitive abilities of bilingual children with SLI across different migrant communities. A battery of tools for Language Impairment Testing in Multilingual Settings (LITMUS) was designed within the Action to achieve these aims, including the Parental Bilingual Questionnaire, a Sentence Repetition task, Crosslinguistic Lexical Tasks, the Multilingual Assessment Instrument for Narratives, and two nonword repetition tasks that are not language-specific. This volume presents research on one or more of the LITMUS tasks in bilingual children with typical language development (Part I: 'LITMUS in Typical Bilingual Development') and exploits the LITMUS testing battery for identifying possible language impairment (Part II: 'Using LITMUS for Identifying SLI (DLD)')"-- Provided by publisher.
