Title: Cross-Language Interference During Trilingual Picture-Naming in Single and Mixed Language Conditions
Author: Julia Festman

Institution: Universität Potsdam
Linguistic Field: Psycholinguistics
Abstract: In a picture-naming task, the performance of 17 unbalanced trilinguals was examined in three target languages (L1 German, L2 English, L3 French). Due to frequent switching more interference was found in the L3 from the L2, but in the L1 and the L2 more from the L2 and the L1, respectively. In general, results showed that the more a language was activated, the more frequently it was found to cause interference in weaker target languages. An extension of Green's (1998) bilingual model is put forward to explain trilingual processing, and the direction of cross-language interference.
