A Test of the Sophisticated Guessing Theory of Word Perception
Johnston, James C.
Cognitive Psychology, 10, 2, 123-53, Apr 78
Experiments tested the predictions that words are perceived more accurately in strongly constraining word contexts than in weakly constraining word contexts, and that a strong perceptual advantage would be present for letters in words vs. letters alone or in unrelated-letter strings. Several alternative theories of word perception are discussed. (Author/JAC)
