Interlingual Homograph Interference in German-English Bilingual: Its Modulation and Locus of Control.
von Studnitz, Roswitha E.; Green, David W.
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v5 n1 p1-23 Apr 2002
Investigates control of the bilingual lexico-semantic system in visual word recognition. Used a visual lexical decision task to explore control processes in proficient German-English bilinguals. Critical stimuli were interlingual homographs such as the low-frequency English word "tag," which means day in German. Overall, participants responded more slowly to an interlingual homograph than to a control word matched to its English frequency. (Author/VWL)
