Language Dominance in a Trilingual Child

N. Zeng

Tohoku University, Japan

Chevalier (2015) defines “trilingual language acquisition" as language development of young children regularly exposed to three languages. Many studies suggest that balanced bilinguals can barely be found, as bilinguals’ relative proficiency in either language may be different. Where a person has greater control over one language than other, it is referred to as ‘language dominance’. In this presentation I will focus on the language dominance of a Korean-Chinese-Japanese trilingual infant born in 2015 and growing up in Japan, and explore how this infant variably acquires three languages. The data so far reveal that the dominant-language of this infant is Japanese.
