Effects of Prior Context upon Lexical Access during Sentence Comprehension
Swinney, David A.; Hakes, David T.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 15, 6, 681-689, Dec 76
Effects of disambiguating prior contexts upon processing of lexical ambiguities in sentences were investigated. Subjects listened to lexically ambiguous sentences after a neutral or a disambiguating prior contest, and monitored for phonemes occurring immediately after each ambiguous word. Reaction times were significnatly longer following ambiguous words than following controls. (CHK)
