Conflict-Monitoring Framework Predicts Larger Within-Language ISPC Effects: Evidence from Turkish-English Bilinguals

Abstract

In this study, we investigated within- and between-language Item-Specific Proportion Congruence (ISPC) effects in Turkish-English bilinguals in two experiments. In both experiments we manipulated the language of the ISPC lists, while keeping the response language the same (Turkish in Experiment 1, and English in Experiment 2). We observed a larger within-language ISPC effect compared to between-language ISPC effect in both experiments. These results are consistent with the predictions of conflict-monitoring models of the ISPC effect.
