Reasoning in Two Languages: An Assessment of the Reasoning Ability of Puerto Rican Elementary School Children.
Koopmans, Matthijs
Linguistics and Education, v3 n4 p345-58 1991
The syllogistic reasoning performance of Puerto Rican children in grades three through five was assessed in English and Spanish. The difference in formal reasoning in favor of Spanish was attributed to the additional processing demands imposed on children when they solve problems in their second language.
