This study examines the impact of the crosslinguistic similarity of translation equivalents on word recognition by Russian-English bilinguals, who are fluent in languages with two different but partially overlapping writing systems. Current models fo... Read More about Are you reading what I am reading? The impact of contrasting alphabetic scripts on reading English.

The effect of a bilingual learning mode on the establishment of lexical semantic representations in the L2 (2014)
Journal Article
Piasecki, A. E., Elgort, I., & Piasecki, A. E. (2014). The effect of a bilingual learning mode on the establishment of lexical semantic representations in the L2. Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 17(3), 572-588. https://doi.org/10.1017/S1366728913000588

Deliberate vocabulary learning is common in the L2, however, questions remain about most efficient and effective forms of this learning approach. Bilingual models of L2 word learning and processing can be used to make predictions about outcomes of le...

Systematic psycholinguistic research has considered the nature of the coexistence of two (or more) languages in the cognitive system of a fluent bilingual speaker. There is increasing consensus that when a bilingual is presented with a visual stimulu... Read More about The effects of proficiency on sub-lexical processing in bilingual visual word recognition.
