Mix die taal! Or maybe not?

Prof. dr. W. B. T. (ElmaBlom (f), UU – Language teaching and acquisition

Many bilinguals combine or mix languages when they speak. The researchers aim to find out if children have difficulties learning language from mixed sources, how and why children mix, and if language mixing is different for children with and without a Developmental Language Disorder.
