Lexical Knowledge of Monolingual and Bilingual Children.
Verhallen, Marianne; Schoonen, Rob
Applied Linguistics, v14 n4 p344-63 Dec 1993
To study lexical knowledge relevant for school success, 40 monolingual Dutch and 40 bilingual Turkish 9 and 11-year olds were asked to explain the meanings of common Dutch nouns in an extended word definition task. Compared to the monolingual Dutch children, the bilingual Turkish children allotted less extensive and varied meanings to Dutch words. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/LB)
