Despite the overreliance on comparisons between monolingual and bilingual samples in the extant literature, there is at least some evidence supporting a relationship between L2 proficiency and improved monitoring. Global decreases in RT have been reported in early bilinguals compared to less proficient late bilinguals on the ANT (Tao et al., 2011), as well as within samples of bilinguals who differ in their degree of L2 proficiency, with higher proficiency associated with faster RTs on all trial types on a Flanker task (Xie, 2018;Xie & Pisano, 2019;Xie & Zhou, 2020). While we also report improved monitoring associated with higher reported number of languages used, we are cautious regarding the significance placed on this findingconsidering that measures of multilingualism were limited in scope. ...
