Early Morphological Effects in Word Recognition in Hebrew: Evidence from Parafoveal Preview Benefit.
Deutsch, Avital; Frost, Ram; Pollatsek, Alexander; Rayner, Keith
Language and Cognitive Processes, v15 n4-5 p487-506 Aug-Oct 2000
Hebrew words are composed of two interwoven morphemes: a triconsonantal root and a word pattern. Two experiments examined the effect of the root morpheme on word identification by assessing parafoveal preview benefit effects. Although the information of the preview was not consciously perceived, preview of the root's letters facilitated both naming and lexical decisions of target words derived from these roots.
