Sophia Czapka, Nathalie Topaj, Natalia Gagarina
2021 Languages  
Russian and Turkish are the most frequently spoken and intensively investigated heritage languages in Germany, but contrastive research on their development in early childhood is still missing.  ...  Common predictors for lexicon size are input quantity from siblings and AoO. Group-specific influences are parental input quantity in the Russian group and siblings' proficiency in the Turkish group.  ...  Beside quantity, the quality of input impacts lexicon development.  ...

The impact of older siblings on the language environment and language development of bilingual toddlers

Danai Tsinivits, Sharon Unsworth
2020 Applied Psycholinguistics  
Previous research has suggested that the language development of bilingual children benefits from more exposure and opportunities for language use.  ...  In this study, we examine the impact of having an older sibling on the language environment and language development of a group of 31 bilingual Greek–Dutch toddlers aged 16 to 30 months growing up in the  ...  While this inevitably means that the two are not entirely comparable, the average measures are-to the best of our knowledge, as not all researchers specify exactly how their measures are derived-more comparable  ...
