The fact that parallel English and Swedish data were collected on two consecutive occasions in the CLISS project offers a unique opportunity to compare the effects of CLIL in terms of English as well as Swedish language development on a longitudinal basis. A substantial proportion of the students taking part in the CLISS project were second language (L2) speakers of Swedish, which from a multilingual perspective makes such comparisons even more interesting. This chapter concerns vocabulary development with a special focus on L2 Swedish students in CLIL. Before turning to the field of L2 vocabulary development and the actual study, we will give a brief background of English in multilingual Sweden, the recently adopted Swedish Language Act, and multilingual students in CLIL.
