The Measurement of Bilingualism and Its Relationship to Cognitive Ability.
Lemmon, Christian R.; Goggin, Judith P.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v10 n2 p133-55 Jun 1989
Two experiments explored monolingual and bilingual subjects' performances on measures of English and Spanish language ability and cognitive skills. Language ability measures were highly correlated with each other, and a comparison of monolingual and bilingual subgroups suggested that low bilinguals accounted for differences between monolinguals' and bilinguals' cognitive scores.
