Abstract:
			
The cross-linguistic differences documented in studies of relative
clause attachment offer an invaluable opportunity to examine a
particular aspect of bilingual sentence processing: Do bilinguals
process their two languages as if they were monolingual speakers of
each? This volume provides a review of existing research on relative
clause attachment, showing that speakers of languages like English
attach relative clauses differently than do speakers of languages like
Spanish. Fernández reports the findings of an investigation with
monolinguals and bilinguals, tested using speeded ("on-line") and
unspeeded ("off-line") methodology, with materials in both English and
Spanish. The experiments reveal similarities across the groups when
the procedure is speeded, but differences with unspeeded
questionnaires: The monolinguals replicate the standard
cross-linguistic differences, while bilinguals have
language-independent preferences determined by language dominance ---
bilinguals process stimuli in either of their languages according to
the general preferences of monolinguals of their dominant language.
