 Notes
Abstract: Spanish-English bilinguals saw general knowledge questions presented in English corresponding to English target words. Following tip-of-the-tongue (TOT) responses, participants heard Spanish primes whose English translations contained the target's first syllable or were phonologically unrelated to the target. Primes also shared or did not share part of speech with the target. General knowledge questions were presented again, and participants attempted target retrieval. Results showed that mediated priming occurred across languages, where participants resolved more TOTs following phonologically-related primes than unrelated words, independent of the primes' part-of-speech. These findings offer a new perspective into the processes by which bilinguals process words and their differences from monolinguals.
