Samples of secondary school students in Tanzania were administered repertory tests with elements consisting of either persons or countries in both of the languages English and Swahili. Comparison of English and Swahili grids showed that language deficit reduces the polarization of judgements made using constructs articulated in the weaker language, although no differences in construct relationships were observed. Implications of the results for the relationship between language and conceptualization are discussed. (Author)
