Abstract: This paper is a review of Abutalebi et al. (http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/content/full/27/50/13762). This study is particularly worth highlighting as it could potentially have major implications for models of bilingual comprehension and speaks to the question of what the neuronal correlates of perceiving language switches may be. Our review also emphasizes our concern surrounding the contrast between "regular" and "irregular" language switches and a frank assessment of why we feel these particular findings should be interpreted with caution.
