The BIA++: Extending the BIA+ to a Dynamical Distributed Connectionist Framework
Jacquet, Maud; French, Robert M.
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v5 n3 p202-205 Dec 2002
Dijkstra and van Heuven have made an admirable attempt to develop a new model of bilingual memory, the BIA+. Their article presents a clear and well-reasoned theoretical justification of their model, followed by a description of their model. The BIA+ is, as the name implies, an extension of the Bilingual Interactive Activation (BIA) model (Dijkstra and van Heuven, 1998; Van Heuven, Dijkstra and Grainger, 1998; etc), which was itself an adaptation to bilingual memory of McClelland and Rumelhart's (1981) Interactive Activation model of monolingual memory.
