Now that the main issues concerning the multilingual mental lexicon storage and retrieval have been delineated, it is time to outline the most essential aspects concerning visual word recognition in multilinguals. Even a brief inspection of articles on visual word recognition reveals that three groups of words typically exploited in this kind of research are interlingual homographs, interlingual neighbours and cognates (cf. Sect.  3.4).
