Please note: To accommodate reviewer and recommender holiday schedules, we will be closed to submissions from 1st July — 1st September. During this time, reviewers will be able to submit reviews and recommenders will issue decisions, but no new or revised submissions can be made by authors. The one exception to this rule is that authors using the scheduled track who submit their initial Stage 1 snapshot prior to 1st July can choose a date within the shutdown period to submit their full Stage 1 manuscript.

We are recruiting recommenders (editors) from all research fields!

The Influence of Bilingualism on Statistical Word Learning: A Registered Reportuse asterix (*) to get italics

<p>While statistical word learning has been the focus of many studies on monolinguals, it has<br>received little attention in bilinguals. The results of existing studies on statistical word learning<br>in bilinguals are inconsistent, with some research reporting a bilingual advantage over<br>monolinguals but others finding no difference between groups. Thus, our study will investigate<br>statistical learning using the Cross-Situational Statistical Learning paradigm between two<br>groups: English-German bilinguals and English monolinguals. Participants will learn 1:1<br>mappings (one word maps onto one object) and 1:2 mappings (one word maps onto two<br>objects). In contrast to previous studies, we will measure learning continuously and analyse<br>trial-by-trial behaviour closely to understand fine-grained learning differences across language<br>groups. We predict that it will generally be easier to acquire 1:1 than 1:2 mappings, but more<br>importantly, we predict that bilinguals will outperform monolinguals for 1:2 mappings only,<br>consistent with a specific bilingual advantage.</p>
