Newsletter - February 2019

Hi there,

Welcome to the February speechBITE newsletter! International Mother Language Day took place on 21st February, and here at speechBITE it’s inspired us to think about linguistic diversity and intervention. This special edition of the newsletter covers bilingualism, multilingualism, dialect variation, and accent.

To find more references in this area, go to the advanced search page on speechBITE and select ‘Multilingual' under the 'Within this Population' drop down menu.

Listed below are some of the research studies in this area, which have been added to speechBITE this month.
