Lexical Ambiguity Resolution: Word Processing, Recognition and Context Effect
Kilickaya, Ferit
Online Submission
In the paper the lexical ambiguity resolution is presented. The paper is specifically focused on the processing of words, models of word recognition, context effect, trying to find an answer to how the reader-listener determines the contextually appropriate meaning of a word. Ambiguity resolution is analyzed and explored in two perspectives: the context in which the lexical items appear and the activation of all the meanings which an ambiguous word has. There is no clear-cut answer to lexical ambiguity resolution and there is a great debate about the role of the context in the activation of the meaning of ambiguous words. (Contains a bibliography.)
