Lexical Access via an Orthographic Code? The Basic Orthographic Syllabic Structure (BOSS) Reconsidered.
Lima, Susan D.; Pollatsek, Alexander
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v22 n3 p310-22 Jun 1983
Three lexical decision experiments tested the claim that lexical access is based on a word's basic orthographic syllabic structure (BOSS). No evidence was found that BOSS is a word's unique lexical access entry, and one experiment suggested that morphemic units are more likely to be access codes than purely orthographic units. (MSE)
