token. While some studies have shown these costs to be asymmetrical, with bilinguals evidencing a greater delay when producing switches into their dominant language relative to the non-dominant language (e.g. Meuter & Allport, 1999), others have shown symmetrical costs, depending on individual (e.g. proficiency) and contextual (e.g. language mode) factors. The current study, employing an eyetracking paradigm, extends this line of research by examining the potential for switch costs during auditory comprehension. Paralleling previous productionoriented research, results of the current study demonstrate flexible switch costs during auditory comprehension. Switch costs were asymmetrical in monolingual mode, with greater costs incurred when switching into the dominant l
