Mental Lexicon 2018
This collection holds the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on the Mental Lexicon, held in Edmonton, Alberta, on September 25-28, 2018. This annual conference brings together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain and encourages a variety of perspectives on lexical representation and processing.

This study illustrates how cluster analysis can be applied to vocabulary assessment to classify students into groups with similar profiles of vocabulary knowledge so that vocabulary instruction can be designed and targeted more precisely, especially in light of the multi-dimensional nature of the...
We report on a visual masked priming study that tests whether English verbs are primed by their consonant graphemes in isolation (e.g. whether grw primes GROW) and whether priming for such prime-target pairs differs for regular versus irregular verbs (e.g. walk/ed vs. grow/grew, respectively). We...
We report results from two experiments in which the effects of rhyme prime (RP) are investigated by manipulating the properties of the interveners between prime and target. Studies of visual priming report that interveners have differing effects depending on the types of processing they require;...
We present two auditory-auditory priming experiments investigating whether decomposition effects for pseudo-related prime-target pairs like corner → CORN are restricted to early visual word recognition  or can also be found in auditory processing. Experiment 1 shows no difference in...
Contextually predictable, high frequency, competitor-dense words are often produced with less phonetically contrastive categories in spontaneous speech, often manifested with shorter durations. The present study investigates the role of temporal variation in the recognition of isolated words...
The question whether complex words, including pseudocomplex words (e.g., corn+er), are obligatorily segmented into existing morphemes (e.g., ) has been the topic of a large body of past morphological processing research. A recent line of studies finds consistent effects of the whole-word...
