Cross-language activation of phonology in young bilingual readersAuthor(s): Debra Jared; Pierre Cormier; Betty Ann Levy; Leslie Wade-Woolley
This study investigated the extent to which FI students whose first language is English identify and process words in both English and French during reading. Specifically the researchers explored whether students simultaneously learning two languages that share the same alphabet mentally store and retrieve words through a language specific system—French only or English only, or whether students posses a larger lexicon where their knowledge of both French and English words is invoked during the reading process.
