This inquiry explored the role of language control during simultaneous bilingual production and comprehension. The study revealed the top-down language control mechanism by analysing induced oscillations, which reflected a mainly cognitively driven process. Cross-modality interference may be caused by joint language switching. Bilinguals’ language control might be used to inhibit complex interference during daily life.
