Migrants' language skills

This topic refers to the  language skills of migrants, both in terms of their first language and languages used in the host society. It concerns language skills and attainment of first-generation migrants, but also of their descendants (second and third generation). Various consequences of migration in terms of the linguistic make-up of a host or sending society are also included in this topic.  

Studies listed under this topic include literature on the relationship between  language and earnings, bilingualism, early second-language acquisition, challenges, and the relationship between ethnic networks and language proficiency.

A cross-context study of early language skills of immigrant children in Canada and the Netherlands

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Observed correlations between linguistic proficiency and school success, on the one hand, and existing differences in the academic success of immigrant students across countries, on the other hand, lead to the expectation that there are differences across countries in the early language development of immigrant children. The aim of the present study is therefore to pinpoint factors of success and failure with regard to the language development of bilingual immigrant children by looking across contexts. The contexts in this study are chosen on the basis of academic success: in Canada, immigrant students are rather successful, whereas in the Netherlands they perform below native levels. Immigrants in Canada and the Netherlands differ in socio-economic status, level of education, levels of integration in society, quality of schools immigrant children attend and clustering. These factors influence the quality and quantity of the language immigrant children are exposed to, which, in turn, will have an immediate effect on their linguistic proficiency. The method proposed in this study is innovative. Comparisons in terms of academic performance are routinely carried out between countries, but cross-context studies of early spoken language of immigrant children in contrastive environments, like Canada and the Netherlands, are non-existent. The outcome of this study is relevant for scientific purposes because it enables testing of input-driven approaches to language acquisition. From a societal perspective, the topic of this project is urgent. In the Netherlands, as in various other European countries, the proportion of immigrant children is increasing. Relatively high proportions of these children show delays in primary education. Insight in their language skills may be essential for understanding these delays.

Language-Skill Investments and Migration Decisions

Year 2015
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Migration has become an increasingly important aspect of globalization over the last decades. A factor which is likely to be important for most migrants is language skills. Empirical research in the area of language and migration is, however, constrained by the scarcity of high-quality data, in particular individual level information on pre-migration language learning, language skills and migration intentions. Furthermore, investment in language skills and investments in different types of education are often interdependent. More generally, understanding language-skill investment also sheds light on the role of education investment on migration decisions.Our project will draw on and add to three separate but interrelated strands of literature: (1) pre-migration adult-age language learning, (2) general and gender-specific migration choice and (3) investment in internationally applicable and country-specific education in a migration context. For this, surveys will be conducted among participants of language courses offered by the Goethe-Institut which is an important provider of German language courses abroad. In 2015 alone, there were about 272,000 course participants worldwide. Surveys among university students will complement these surveys. The data will contain individual level information on migration intentions and previous migration experience as well as on language learning, including the reasons of learning or not learning, and on the level of existing language skills. Furthermore, there will be detailed information on the socio-economic background, in particular the level of education and the type of qualification. We propose four studies: The first study will investigate the reasons of language learning in the home country and its determinants. The second study will examine the relationship between migration intentions on the one side, and language skills, personal and country characteristics on the other side. Focusing on intentions instead of realized migration helps to better asses possible migration barriers. The third study will test if migration is related to the international applicability of acquired education. The fourth study aims at contributing to the understanding of language-skill investments in the presence of potentially gender-specific migration incentives. Given the role of language proficiency for integration, a better understanding of individual motives for acquiring language skills and individual migration intentions will allow policies like language course offers and legal language requirements to be better targeted at different groups of migrants even before their migration. This will be a joint project by the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and the ifo Institute for Economic Research at the University of Munich.

French-English bilinguals' processing of morphosyntactic structures: the case of cross-linguistic transfer

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
One question central to both bilingual first language acquisition (2L1) and second language development (L2) research is to understand the mechanisms that lead to systematic interaction between the languages, i.e. cross-linguistic influence (CLI). To-date, we know that bilinguals’ two languages are continuously co-activated to some extent at the lexicon and sentence level. Bilinguals need to map different syntactic forms, i.e. one or more for each language, onto the same discourse function, which occasionally leads to the entrenchment of the non-targetlike form. Yet, little is known about how the age of acquisition (2L1 vs. L2) and language dominance (expressive abilities, language exposure) affect the processing mechanisms governing this phenomenon. This project focuses on an aspect of morphosyntactic development (the article system) known to be particularly challenging for both bilingual children and adults. It adopts a unique comparative approach to investigate whether simultaneous French-English bilingual children’s and L2 adult bilinguals’ sentence comprehension is affected by the parallel activation of the article system in specific and generic contexts in two studies using the self-paced moving window method. French is a very restrictive language and requires the projection of a determiner in argument position. In contrast, English allows bare mass nouns and bare plural nouns in non-specific and generic contexts. These cross-linguistic differences will allow us to test (i) whether the co-activation of distinct morphosyntactic forms (article system) depending on the semantic context (specific vs. generic) leads to language interference in French-English bilinguals’ comprehension of sentence structure; (ii) the role of language exposure vs. productive measures of the relative language dominance on the direction and magnitude of cross-linguistic transfers; (iii) to what extent this phenomenon operates differently depending on the age of language acquisition.

Multilingual Lexicon Extraction from Comparable Corpora

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'Given large collections of parallel (i.e. translated) texts, it is well-known how to, by successively applying a sentence- and a word-alignment step, establish correspondences between words across languages. However, parallel texts are a scarce resource for most language pairs involving lesser-used languages. On the other hand, human second language acquisition seems not to require the reception of large amounts of translated texts, which indicates that there must be another way of crossing the language barrier. Apparently, the human capabilities are based on looking at comparable resources, i.e. texts or speech on related topics in different languages, which, however, are not translations of each other. Comparable (written or spoken) corpora are far more common than parallel corpora, thus offering the chance to overcome the data acquisition bottleneck. Despite its cognitive motivation, in the proposed project we will not attempt to simulate the complexities of human second language acquisition, but will show that it is possible by purely technical means to automatically extract information on word- and multiword-translations from comparable corpora. The aim is to push the boundaries of current approaches, which typically utilize correlations between co-occurrence patterns across languages, in several ways: 1) Eliminating the need for initial lexicons by using a bootstrapping approach which only requires a few seed translations. 2) Implementing a new methodology which first establishes alignments between comparable documents across languages, and then computes cross-lingual alignments between words and multiword-units. 3) Improving the quality of computed word translations by applying an interlingua approach, which, by relying on several pivot languages, allows a highly effective multi-dimensional cross-check. 4) We will show that, by looking at foreign citations, language translations can even be derived from a single monolingual text corpus.'
