Speech Behaviour of a Preschool Mono-ethnic Bilingual
2019
This work is devoted to the study of a rather new, but actively spreading phenomenon - mono-ethnic bilingualism. This type of bilingualism implies immersion of a child brought up in a monolingual family in an artificially created foreign language environment. We consider this phenomenon on the example of families living in the Russian Federation in Moscow and the Moscow Region and raising their children Russian-English bilinguals.

In the first two parts of the work, we described the strategies that are used in the upbringing of bilingual children, as well as specific cases of their use; characterized the mono-ethnic bilingualism of the studied group of children by a number of factors and revealed its typological features; considered digestible languages in their status-role aspect; analyzed the ontogenesis of the speech activity of Russian-speaking monolinguals, compared with the peculiarities of the speech development of the studied bilinguals and described the typical errors in the speech of bilingual children, consisting in interference at different language levels.

In the third part of this work, we conducted an experimental study of the processes of production and perception in mono-ethnic bilinguals and compared the results obtained with testing the same processes in the control group of Russian-speaking monolinguals.

Keywords: mono-ethnic bilingualism, parental strategies, typing of bilingualism, speech activity ontogenesis, interference, production and reception processes, Russian, English
