Thesis Title

Lexical retrieval performance and bilingualism

Research Project

I am interested in how lexical retrieval performances varies across different age groups between monolingual and bilingual population. In particular, my current project looks at the tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon that usually accompany with expressive word retrieval performance. By comparing the receptive vocabulary performance and the expressive vocabulary performance, my project tries to explain the issues in language development and their relation to executive function across life span. To do this, I am using behavioural method that employs a set of cognitive and language tasks.
