Abstract: Singapore has a high rate of multilingualism in the generations now making up its elderly population. (i) Census data on literacy rate fails to capture the complexities of this multilingualism; (ii) Failure to account for spoken multilingualism; (iii) No recognition of non-official languages such as Baba Malay and Chinese vernaculars. In this respect, there lacks an understanding of the intricacy of multilingualism of Singapore's elderly. [1st Award]
