comment Raising a tri-lingual child, tricky context
Hi Brian. Do you have some studies to back that up? I'd love to see them. My (probably statistically insignificant) sample of multi-lingual families I know doesn't seem to have this issue, even though most of them are not consistent. The stuff I've seen quoted so far indicates that after approximately 2 years, kids can distinguish languages just fine, and, in particular, that mixing languages at that point is not a sign of language confusion - the kids do it in order to be able to say more things and only to people who they know can understand both.
