Large Database of English Pseudo-compounds (LaDEP)
The Large Database of English Pseudo-compounds (LaDEP) contains nearly 7,500 English words which mimic, but do not truly possess, a compound morphemic structure. These pseudo-compounds can be parsed into two free morpheme constituents (e.g., car-pet), but neither constituent functions as a...
Carport and carpet: Effects of compound and pseudo-compound word structures on typing

Cultural Empathy in Intercultural Interactions: The Development and Validation of the Intercultural Empathy IndexDownload
Based on discussions of cultural empathy in intercultural communication and counseling and multicultural psychology, this paper presents a model and a measure of cultural empathy suited for a broad range intercultural interactions - the Intercultural Empathy Index (IEI). We examined the IEI’s...

Figures for the Manuscript titled as 'Superior Cognitive Mapping through Single-landmark-related Learning than through Boundary-related Learning'Download
Cognitive mapping is assumed to be through hippocampus-dependent place learning rather than striatum-dependent response learning. However, we propose that either type of spatial learning, as long as it involves encoding metric relations between locations and reference points, could lead to a...
Hyponymy ratings of English compound words
This database contains hyponymy ratings for 2754 English compounds. The database is available in both Stata and CSV formats. The variable id_master refers to the item number in the LADEC database (Gagné, CL., Spalding, TL., & Schmidtke, D. (2019). LADEC: Large database of English compounds....

LaDEC: Large database of English compounds
The Large Database of English Compounds (LADEC) consists of over 8000 English words that can be parsed into two constituents that are free morphemes. This file contains compounds formed from 3-10 letter long bases. All items are listed in Wordnet as Nouns. The database contains a number of...
