The commentaries on our Keynote article “Psycholinguistic, cognitive, and neural implications of bimodal bilingualism” were enthusiastic about what can be learned by studying bilinguals who acquire two languages that are understood via distinct perceptual systems (vision vs. audition) and that are produced with distinct linguistic articulators (the hands vs. the vocal tract). The authors also brought out several new ideas, extensions, and issues related to bimodal bilingualism, which we discuss in this reply.
