Abstract and Keywords

Cognitive processing in bilinguals is the focus of this article. It proposes a move from the current largely static models of multilingual processing to more dynamic models. As in the first edition of this book, the focus is on language production because the models that have been developed for this are detailed, well supported, and have been accepted as the standard at this moment. The first section is largely similar to that previously presented. Then, for the transition to a more dynamic model, Hartsuiker and Pickering's comparative study to evaluate different variants is discussed and contrasted with a view that is based on a dynamic perspective on representation and processing in which change over time is seen as the most important aspect of processing. Traditional psycholinguistic models and their variants are discussed at length. An analysis of the characteristics of the DST-based models of bilingual processing concludes this article.

Keywords: cognitive processing, bilinguals, static models, psycholinguistic, language production
