This article provides computationalevidence based on the DevLex model, a self-organizing neural network model, and neuroimaging evidence based on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies, to illustrate how children and adults learn and represent the lexicon in their first and second languages.

Advances in the Study of Bilingualism
This book provides a contemporary approach to the study of bilingualism by drawing on current findings and methodologies to explore the ways in which research can address this question from a number of different perspectives. Expand
Does language dominance affect cognitive performance in bilinguals? Lifespan evidence from preschoolers through older adults on card sorting, Simon, and metalinguistic tasks
The lack of evidence for a bilingual advantage in Welsh-English simultaneous and early sequential bilinguals suggests the need for much closer scrutiny of what type of bilingual might demonstrate the reported effects, under what conditions, and why. Expand
Interface or face to face? The profiles and contours of bilinguals and specific language impairment
What makes a child's language development trajectory have the patterns that it has, and what causes differences across children in those patterns? These fundamental questions have for over half aExpand
Semantic interaction in early and late bilinguals: all words are not created equally.
This study examines L1–L2 interaction in semantic categorization in early and late L2 learners. Word categories that overlapped but were not identical in Arabic and English were tested. Words alwaysExpand

The simulation results indicate that the rate of word confusion is modulated by developmental profile of vocabulary increase, word density of competing neighbors, and rate of lexical growth, which match up with hypotheses from empirical research on lexical development. Expand
Modeling the Development of Lexicon with a Growing Self-Organizing Map
A self-organizing neural network model that can acquire an incremental lexicon and demonstrates the ability to highly preserve learned lexical structure when 100 new words are gradually added. Expand
The acquisition of lexical and grammatical aspect in Chinese
This study reports three experiments on how children learning Mandarin Chinese comprehend and use aspect markers. These experiments examine the role of lexical aspect in children's acquisition ofExpand
