Specifics of Formation of Secondary Language Personality in the Case of Subordinative Bilingualism (on the Example of the Russian-Korean Comparisons)

Cover Page


The main points of view on the problem of bilingualism are considered in the article. The theoretical part of the work contains the most significant research positions in relation to this phenomenon. The practical part presents the results of an associative survey to identify the process of formation of a secondary linguistic personality among Korean-Russian and Russian-Korean subordinate bilinguals. Associative stimulus was the words of the thematic group “Time” (“long ago”, “recently”, “soon”, etc.). Respondents were subordinate bilinguals (B2 and higher). The results of the experiment suggest that in the consciousness of subordinate bilinguals (level B2 and higher), an intensive process of formation of a secondary associative system and a secondary linguistic personality begins.
