reported (e.g., Cummins, 1978b) they tend to be low, thus raising not only the empirical validity question but also the theoretical question of what the dimensions are of the construct of metalinguistic awareness or skill and what developmental stages it goes through. Some promising work directed toward answering these questions has recently started ( Bialystok & Ryan, 1985). Until the theoretical issues relating to the construct of metalinguistic development are tackled, little further empirical progress is likely to be made in elucidating its relationship to bilingualism.
