Abstract

Switching between languages in picture naming incurs a cost associated with inhibition of the non-target language (Meuter & Allport, 1999).

This cost is symmetrical in balanced bilinguals and asymmetrical in unbalanced bilinguals with higher cost associated with switching back into L1 (Costa & Santesteban,2004).

We investigated whether cost is incurred in similar ways by bidialectals switching between two dialects.

To increase generalisablity, we conducted this experiment in 2 locations: in Scotland using Standard Scottish English and Dundonian-Scots bidialectals) and in Germany using German and Öcher bidialectals).

We also investigated differences between active vs. passive, and older vs. younger bidialectals.
