The Relationship Between Bilingualism and the Development of Cognitive Processes in Problem Solving.
Bialystok, Ellen; Majumder, Shilpi
Applied Psycholinguistics, v19 n1 p69-85 Mar 1998
A study examined the effects of differing degrees of bilingualism (English monolingual, English-French balanced bilingual, Bengali-English partial bilingual) on nonverbal problem-solving abilities of 71 grade-three children. The groups were compared on control of attention and analysis of knowledge. Results indicate the balanced bilinguals performed better on non-linguistic tasks requiring control of attention, but no other significant differences. (Author/MSE)
