  3. 3. Bilingual Lexical Access in Reading : Analyzing the Effect of Semantic Context on Non-Selective Access in Bilingual Memory

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Centrum för tvåspråkighetsforskning

    Author : Mattias Kurnik; [2016]
    Keywords : Bilingualism; Lexical access; Non-selectivity; Reading; Sentence context; Cognates; Eye-tracking.; Tvåspråkighet; lexikal åtkomst; icke-selektivitet; läsning; meningskontext; kognater; eye-tracking.;

    Abstract : Recent empirical studies about the neurological executive nature of reading in bilinguals differ in their evaluations of the degree of selective manifestation in lexical access as implicated by data from early and late reading measures in the eye-tracking paradigm. Currently two scenarios are plausible: (1) Lexical access in reading is fundamentally language non-selective and top-down effects from semantic context can influence the degree of selectivity in lexical access; (2) Cross-lingual lexical activation is actuated via bottom-up processes without being affected by top-down effects from sentence context.
