Processing Cost Associated with Inflectional Morphology in Bilingual Speakers.
Portin, Marja; Laine, Matti
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v4 n1 p55-62 Apr 2001
Visual recognition of inflected, derived, and morphophonemic Swedish nouns in monolingual Swedish and bilingual Swedish-Finnish speakers was investigated. Bilinguals were slower overall; inflected items yielded disproportionately longer reaction times in the bilingual group. Derived forms elicited fastest reaction times in both groups. The observed processing cost associated with inflectional morphology indicates bilingual background can affect the recognition process for inflected words. (Author/VWL)
