In the talk outlined below, Ann-Kristin Helland Gujord (University of Bergen) and Sandra L. Halverson (University College Bergen) sketch the overall framework and briefly presents some preliminary analyses from a project that is currently being developed. The aim of the project is to investigate empirically the particular multicompetence of (at this stage Norwegian-English) bilinguals and to describe its manifestation in different bilingual modes (elicited writing and translation). The bilingual data produced by advanced bilinguals will also be compared to monolingual data. This talk is internal.
