Control Properties of Semantic Coding in a Lexical Decision Task
Shulman, Harvey G.; Davison, Thomas C. B.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 16, 1, 91-98, Feb 77
Decisions about whether pairs of letter strings are both words or not are faster for semantically related words than unrelated words. Two experiments showed the semantic relatedness effect is greatly reduced when orthographically illegal, unpronounceable strings were used as negative items. Lexical decisions involve options on codes representing letter strings. (CHK)
