Knowledge of Language and the Multilingual Mind.
Chaudhary, Shreesh
Language Sciences, v20 n2 p201-20 Apr 1998
Discussion of the multilingual mind's organization proposes the Least Expansion Hypothesis, that knowledge of any language is organized in the same cognitive manner. A slot is created for knowledge of each level of language, storing knowledge of all languages pertaining to that level. A new knowledge unit is entered only when differing significantly from those existing at that level. (MSE)
