Inter-lingual interference in a bilingual version of the Stroop color-word task.

The aim of the present experiments was to determine to what extent and under what conditions inter-lingual interference could be produced in the bilingual version of a color-word task. Chapter II first reviews several theories of the nature of the interference found in the color-word task and then presents a new theoretical formulation, drawing on an information processing model, applicable to the bilingual situation. The problem of bilingual dominance is dealt with and a set of predictions is made for both balanced and dominant bilinguals. The following chapters present the results of several experiments along with an interpretation of the results.
