are typically early bilinguals who are frequently exposed to both languages since childhood (De Houwer, 1995). Thus, the current study aims to test whether FLE applies to early bilinguals, and how language dominance might affect. Methodology I intend to obtain quantitative data through an online questionnaire distributed to target participants. The target participants are 18-year-old English-Chinese speakers of NUS High School. Participants will be randomly assigned to a risk-taking situation or a moral dilemma through the questionnaire in either English or Mandarin Chinese. They will then have to make a decision by choosing from a list of possible choices of action, which will be translated into numbers for quantification. Once completed, the participants’ language proficiencies will be assessed using the Bilingual Language Profile (BLP; Birdsong et al., 2012). Questionnaires are useful as they reduce biasness that may arise if the questions were asked in-person. This is because unwanted factors such as the way or tone of questioning may influence the participants’ choices. Online questionnaires provide anonymity, which encourages the participants to answer truthfully as they do not have to worry about being judge for their opinions. The quantified data will also allow easy collation and comparison of results. However, there are limitations in carrying out this research method such as the proficiencies of the participants’ languages being self-reported. Different people might have different self-perceived language standards. Unfortunately, faking of results by participants are also unavoidable. Word Count: 917 References>GET ANSWER
