The roles of Language mode and dominance in French-German bilinguals’ motion event descriptions

Stocker, Ladina ; Berthele, Raphael

In: Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2019, p. 1-13

Juggling with structurally and semantically different language systems leads to constructions that differ from the typical patterns in a language.

Vanhove, Jan ; Bonvin, Audrey ; Lambelet, Amelia ; Berthele, Raphael

In: Journal of Writing Research, 2019, vol. 10, no. 3, p. 499-525
