1. The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis and the bilingual turn in the study of language and cognition; 2. Material worlds: linguistic categorization of the 'kaleidoscopic flux of impressions'; 3. Multidimensional worlds: number, time, and space as linguistic systems of symbolic relationships; 4. Dynamic worlds: linguistic construal of motion events; 5. Narrative worlds: locating ourselves in storylines; 6. Discursive worlds: inner speech, interpretive frames, and the accomplishment of intersubjectivity; 7.

Aneta Pavlenko is Professor of Applied Linguistics at Temple University, Philadelphia and President of the American Association of Applied Linguistics (AAAL).

'A very thoughtful examination not only of bilingualism but of the nature and uses of language generally. It deals with deep issues, but does so with notable clarity.' Jerome Bruner, University Professor Emeritus, New York University 'This is a wonderful book which brings critical insights deriving from a bilingual perspective to bear on linguistic theory in general.

Anna Wierzbicka, Australian National University 'Aneta Pavlenko addresses the intriguing relationship between language and thought in bi- and multilinguals in a unique, comprehensive and refreshing manner. Her beautifully written and lively work deserves to become a milestone in the field.' Francois Grosjean, University of Neuchatel
