Bilingual Long-Term Working Memory: The Effects of Working Memory Loads on Writing Quality and Fluency.
Ransdell, Sarah; Arecco, M. Rosario; Levy, C. Michael
Applied Psycholinguistics, v22 n1 p113-128 Mar 2001
Discusses two experiments: the first examining multilinguals ability to maintain native language writing quality and fluency in the presence of unattended irrelevant speech while maintaining a concurrent 6-digit memory load; the second in which bilinguals reduced fluency during writing with a six-digit load only. Results are interpreted in terms of a bilingual skill advantage in suppressing irrelevant information. (Author/VWL)
