In this talk I will present results from a recently completed project on the distribution and interpretation of nominals with generic/anaphoric interpretation across different contexts in monolingual Greek speakers as well as in a L1-Greek L2-English bilingual population (currently resident in the UK for at least 6 years and highly proficient in English). The L2 has different settings from the L1 in the domain under study and this may result in different behaviours in the two groups. I will discuss results from a context-based acceptability judgment task and a timed truth value judgment task that involved ambiguity resolution. Initial analyses do not reveal any differences between the two groups in these tasks. The implications of such results as well as future research directions will be discussed.
