Assessing Bilingual Dominance.
Flege, James Emil; Mackay, Ian R. A.; Piske, Thorsten
Applied Psycholinguistics, v23 n4 p567-98 Dec 2002
Used two methods to assess bilingual dominance in four groups of Italian-English bilinguals. Ratios were derived from bilinguals' self-rating of ability to speak and understand Italian compared to English. Dominance in Italian was associated with a relatively high level of performance in Italian (assessed in a translation task) and relatively poor performance in English (assessed by measuring strength of foreign accents).
