WHAT IS MULTILINGUALISM?


Every one of us is bilingual. You don't believe it? Surely you know at least a few words in one of the many foreign languages. Maybe a greeting, maybe the numbers to ten, maybe a name for a dish, or - heaven forbid - a swear word. Does that make you bilingual already? Not exactly, but it’s a start! After all, in addition to your native dialect, you're also proficient in the standard version of your native language - and studies show that the cognitive benefits of multiple dialects are comparable to the benefits of mastering multiple languages.

We are currently participating in the Language Transfer project of Pragmatic Elements: Speakers of Slovene in a Multilingual Environment, led by Penka Stateva (2020-2023) and funded by ARRS.












Dogodki











Blog:

Tukaj lahko spremljate naša razmišljanja o jeziku, usvajanju jezika in dvojezičnosti. Znanost bi bila lahko suhoparna, če je ne bi znali predstaviti tudi na dostopen in zabaven način. Uporabite naše prispevke pri pouku ali predstavitvi - lahko pa si blog le ogledate in malo namuznete. Če ste sami kdaj doživeli zanimivo anekdoto v zvezi z večjezičnostjo in če imate žilico za pisanje in/ali fotografiranje, pa nam pošljite svoje besedilo in/ali sliko, da ju bomo objavili.










Knjižnica

Knjižnica vsebuje znanstvene in poljudnoznanstvene prispevke, ki smo jih objavili v različnih domačih in tujih revijah. Pomembno se nam zdi, da omogočimo dostop do podatkov, na katerih slonijo naša dognanja: preverite lahko, da ne gre zgolj za subjektivna prepričanja, ampak na znanstveno utemeljena mnenja in priporočila. Vabljeni k branju!
