Scott, Mary Lee
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v16 n3 p263-81 Sep 1994
This study compared 112 younger and older adult monolingual English speakers and English/Spanish bilingual speakers on measures of auditory perception and memory span. The results revealed no age difference in auditory memory span in English but found that both older and younger bilinguals performed better than monolinguals on these tasks. (Contains 39 references.)
