Han, Mengru; de Jong, Nivja H.; Kager, René – Language Learning and Development, 2021

The past five decades have witnessed a political tension between Taiwan and Mainland China in relation to many countries on a global scale both economically and diplomatically.

Do we structure object-related conceptual information according to real-world sensorimotor experience, or can it also be shaped by linguistic information? This study investigates whether a feature of language coded in grammar--numeral classifiers--affects the conceptual representation of objects. We compared speakers of Mandarin (a classifier…

Hwang, Heeju – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2021
It is well known that English speakers produce fewer pronouns when discourse contexts include more than one entity that matches the gender of the pronoun, i.e., gender effect. It is controversial, however, what causes the gender effect. Some suggest that it results from speakers' avoidance of linguistic ambiguity, while others suggest that it…

While recent studies find that contextual diversity (CD) is a better determinant of visual word recognition than token frequency, there is a dearth of work comparing contextual diversity and token frequency in developing readers. In two sets of character and lexical decision experiments we examined token frequency and contextual diversity effects…

Pan, Jinger; Zhang, Caicai; Huang, Xunan; Yan, Ming – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
The current study examined whether or not lexical access is influenced by detailed phonological features during the silent reading of Chinese sentences.
