Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some suggestions for future research perspectives. The interplay between declarative and procedural knowledge, the boundaries between implicit and explicit knowledge, and also the fundamental discussions of such classifications, will, among other issues, be of interest to multilingualism research. The application of research results to multilingual education such as the clarification of the catalytic effects of third language learning presents a further step. The chapter concludes with a call for a multilingual norm in linguistics, on both the individual level and the societal level, in order to reach the goal of understanding multilingual phenomena.
