The Lexicon: Some Psycholinguistic Evidence. Working Papers in Phonetics 26.
Baker, Lorian Nancy
The aim of this work is to provide a first-approximation model of the lexicon as stored and used in speech production and perception. Both the form of the stored item and the form of the storage network is of concern. Five lexical models--the Transformational model, the Wickelgren model, the Fromkin (speech error) model, the MacKay (speech error) model, and the Brown and McNeill ('tip of the tongue') model-- are discussed. The data on which these models are based is summarized, and various hypotheses on which the models depend are tested. The issue of the ordering of phonological segments in the stored representation of words is considered in Chapter 3. The issue of the interrelations of lexical items and the form of the storage network is considered in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 deals with the possibility of a hierarchical representation of the phonological structure of lexical items. Chapter 6 deals with the representation of the lexical item with regard to semantic features. (Author/KM)
