Linguistic Awareness in Multilinguals

Ulrike Jessner

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter provides a state-of-the-art description of research on metalinguistic awareness including the presentation of the functions and roles that metalinguistic awareness in multilingual speech and learning can fulfil. It starts with a look at the sometimes confusing variety of related terms used in the study of metalinguistic awareness and language awareness. Then the theoretical background of the studies is discussed in order to inform readers about current concepts and measurements of metalinguistic awareness and also to suggest some new approaches that might deserve further attention in this area of research.

Keywords:   metalinguistic awareness, language awareness, language research, multilingual speech
