Although most auditory lexical decision experiments are performed in a laboratory setting, humans tend to communicate in uncontrolled and noisy environments. We investigated, indirectly, the impact of noise and other distractions on lexical processing. The present study used a subset of words...
Whole-word frequency effects in English masked priming: Very little CORN in CORNER and CORNETDownload
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...
Wug Tests can be used to probe morphological knowledge, from the stages of morphological development in the classic Wug Test , to the productivity of morphemes in a human language [6, 21], to testing the acquisition of an artificial grammar [7, 9, 22]. The present study tested three speaker...

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 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...

This paper presents some preliminary results of the SIDE project, which aims at investigating the emotional content of idioms from both a behavioral and computational point of view. In this first work, we collected affective ratings for a set of 45 Italian verb-noun idioms and 45 Italian...

The present experiment investigated the role of vocal affect in spoken word recognition. Participants performed an auditory lexical decision task with stimuli articulated by a professional male actor with different acoustic realizations of vocal affect (Angry, Neutral, and Joyful). In addition,...

Lexical access has been suggested by Huettig and McQueen  to show cascade processing when auditory and visual information are presented to native speakers. The aim of this study was to determine whether cascade processing in Spanish-English bilinguals in a Mexican university is similar to that...

In the mental lexicon words are connected to each other through various paths. We explore how a word’s representation might be accessed, depending on its syntactic properties and shared formal properties with other members of a morphological family. Morphological families of verbs in Russian are...

The TRACE model of spoken word recognition has been widely discussed and used, but was never implemented to simulate the auditory lexical decision task, particularly on a larger number of items. In this study, we attempt to model accuracy and latency estimates and compare the obtained values to...
