Paying Attention to Attention Allocation in Second-Language Learning: Some Insights into the Nature of Linguistic Thresholds.
Hawson, Anne
Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingue, v22 n1 p31-48 Jan-Apr 1997
Three threshold hypotheses proposed by Cummins (1976) and Diaz (1985) as explanations of data on the cognitive consequences of bilingualism are examined in depth and compared to one another. A neuroscientifically updated information-processing perspective on the interaction of second-language comprehension and visual-processing ability is developed and contrasted with the two threshold hypotheses.
