Cover has some light edge and corner wear. ; Conceptions of language representation are changing. Words are not static entries in a mental dictionary. Instead they are part of human communication, ever contextualised in people and their lives, languages, meanings, interactions, and selves. In bringing together lead researchers in the various relevant disciplines, Aneta Pavlenko produces a compelling account of this important new perspective as it applies to bilingualism. Despite its interdisciplinarity, this is rigorous research, with each approach following its own characteristic steps. It is exciting too, as together these Chapters reveal the intricate rhythms of the bilingual lexicon. The approach, and Pavlenko's enthusiasm, are catching. This is a vibrant and readable volume - pick it up, and join the dance. Nick Ellis, University of Michigan ; 0.8 x 5.8 x 8.2 inches ; 250 pages
