Linguistic Diversity and Object Naming by Non-native Speakers of English.
Malt, Barbara C.; Sloman, Steven A.
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v6 n1 p47-67 Apr 2003
Asked second language learners to name household objects in English and in their native language, to judge objects' typicality with respect to English names, and to provide naming strategy reports. Least experienced learners' naming and typicality judgments diverged substantially from native responses. More experienced learners improved, but even some retained discrepancies from native patterns. (Author/VWL)
