A Creativity Index for Studying the Free Written Production of Bilinguals.
Lauren, Ulla
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v1 n2 p198-208 1991
To test whether additive bilinguals are more linguistically creative than monolinguals, a creativity index, based upon linguistic features thought to correspond to the distinctive features of creativity, was calculated from essays written by pupils in a Finnish-Swedish comprehensive school. The results did not seem to reveal higher creativity among the bilingual pupils. (23 references) (JL)
