Neighbourhood Effects on Masked Form Priming in Developing Readers.
Castles, Anne; Davis, Chris; Letcher, Tessa
Language and Cognitive Processes, v14 n2 p201-24 Apr 1999
Examined masked-form priming in groups of developing and skilled readers (elementary students and adults). In a lexical decision task, children showed significantly greater priming than adults for high N (neighborhood-size) words. A gradual attenuation across age was not found. The results suggest that the adaptation to lexical density may not occur until a more advanced stage of reading. (SM)
