Exploring a Decrease in Recognition Performance for Non-Antecedents Following the Processing of Anaphors
Dopkins, Stephen; Nordlie, Johanna
Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v48 n6 p432-451 2011
Recognition judgments to the non-antecedents of a repeated-noun anaphor are slower and less accurate after than before the processing of the anaphor. Disagreement exists as to whether this pattern of performance reflects a bias shift carried out by a memory process associated with the recognition of a word that has previously occurred in the discourse or an accessibility reduction carried out by a comprehension process specifically tied to the resolution of anaphors. The results of 3 experiments supported the memory-based account. (Contains 5 tables.)
