Does Advanced Skills in a Second Language Reduce Automaticity in the First Language?
Segalowitz, Norman
Language Learning, v41 n1 p59-83 Mar 1991
Discusses whether high levels of skill in one's second language (L2) leads to loss of performance in one's first language (L1). Data are reviewed indicating that a high level of reading skill in L2 may indeed be associated with slower reading in L1. (21 references) (Author/VWL)
