Homophone Dominance Modulates the Phonemic-Masking Effect.
Berent, Iris; Van Orden, Guy C.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v4 n2 p133-67 2000
Finds (1) positive phonemic-masking effects occurred for dominant homophones; (2) null phonemic-masking effects occurred for subordinate homophones; and (3) subordinate homophones were much more likely to be falsely identified as their dominant mate. Suggests the source of these null phonemic-masking is itself a phonology effect. Concludes phonology supplies mandatory constraints in the perception of printed words. (RS)
