Factors Related to Cross-Language Transfer and Metaphor Interpretation in Bilingual Children.
Johnson, Janice
Applied Psycholinguistics, v10 n2 p157-77 Jun 1989
Examination of factors underlying cross-language transfer in metaphor interpretation among bilingual (Spanish-English) 7- to 12-year-olds indicated that metaphor interpretation ability was higher in the older subjects. The level of metaphor interpretation was most strongly related to cognitive-developmental variables that were interdependent across languages. (Author/CB)
