Title: Receptive vocabulary differences in monolingual and bilingual adults
Author: Ellen Bialystok
Institution: York University
Author: Gigi Luk
Institution: Harvard Graduate School of Education
Linguistic Field: Language Acquisition; Psycholinguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: English receptive vocabulary scores from 797 monolingual and 808 bilingual participants between the ages of 17 and 89 years old were aggregated from 20 studies to compare standard scores across language groups. The distribution of scores was unimodal for both groups but the mean score was significantly different, with monolinguals obtaining higher standard scores than bilinguals. Consistent with previous research, older adults had higher vocabulary scores than younger adults. The results are discussed in terms of the implications for theoretical conceptions of linguistic processing and clinical diagnosis in bilingual populations.
