Bilingual people have to search for words more often
Anybody who knows me has probably heard me say "now, what’s that word I’m looking for?" I seem to say that many times a day – there’s a perfect word but I it takes me a few seconds to remember just what word it is. Turns out I do that more often than most because I’m bilingual. Or so says this study: Why you make the same mistake twice. They also say that every time I do that, I’m more likely to do that again as my brain learns to forget. Or something like that.
