Lexical and Conceptual Representation in Beginning and Proficient Bilinguals.
Potter, Mary C.; And Others
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v23 n1 p23-38 Feb 1984
Considers two hypotheses about the association between equivalent words in a bilingual's two languages: (1) word association, which hypothesizes a direct association between words in the two languages and (2) concept mediation, which proposes the only connection between the two languages is via an underlying conceptual system. Reports on experiments with fluent and nonfluent bilinguals which support concept mediation. (EKN)
