Thanks for the great article! Though there were a lot of topics covered, I was wondering if simultaneous bilingual CWS ever stutter more in one of their languages than the other? Do you see some relation between languages used by their peers and stuttering? There has been a lot of research that suggests a link between anxiety and stuttering in children, and so if simultaneous bilingual children feel more pressure to use their peer language rather than their home language, might they stutter more in the former? I look forward to your response!
