Balcom, Patricia
Canadian Journal of Applied Linguistics, v2 n1-2 p5-20 1998

The tasks were administered to Anglopone and Francophone advanced and very advanced learners of their second language, and to unilingual groups with the same first languages. Results showed advanced learners judgments differed from unilinguals. (Author/VWL)
