Sauval, Karinne; Casalis, Séverine; Perre, Laetitia – Journal of Research in Reading, 2017
This study investigated the phonological contribution during visual word recognition in child readers as a function of general reading expertise (third and fifth grades) and specific word exposure (frequent and less-frequent words). An intermodal priming in lexical decision task was performed. Auditory primes (identical and unrelated) were used in…

Altvater-Mackensen, Nicole; van der Feest, Suzanne V. H.; Fikkert, Paula – Language Learning and Development, 2014
Toddlers' discrimination of native phonemic contrasts is generally unproblematic. Yet using those native contrasts in word learning and word recognition can be more challenging. In this article, we investigate perceptual versus phonological explanations for asymmetrical patterns found in early word recognition. We systematically investigated the…

MacRoy-Higgins, Michelle; Shafer, Valerie L.; Schwartz, Richard G.; Marton, Klara – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2014
This study examined the influence of phonotactic probability on word recognition in English-speaking toddlers. Typically developing toddlers completed a preferential looking paradigm using familiar words, which consisted of either high or low phonotactic probability sound sequences. The participants' looking behavior was recorded in response to…

Berger, Cynthia; Crossley, Scott; Skalicky, Stephen – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2019
A large dataset of word recognition behavior from nonnative speakers (NNS) of English was collected using an online crowdsourced lexical decision task. Lexical features were used to predict NNS lexical decision latencies and accuracies. Predictors of NNS latencies and accuracy included contextual diversity, age of acquisition, and contextual…

Rigler, Hannah; Farris-Trimble, Ashley; Greiner, Lea; Walker, Jessica; Tomblin, J. Bruce; McMurray, Bob – Developmental Psychology, 2015
This study investigated the developmental time course of spoken word recognition in older children using eye tracking to assess how the real-time processing dynamics of word recognition change over development. We found that 9-year-olds were slower to activate the target words and showed more early competition from competitor words than…

Morini, Giovanna; Newman, Rochelle S. – Journal of Child Language, 2019
Hearing words in sentences facilitates word recognition in monolingual children. Many children grow up receiving input in multiple languages -- including exposure to sentences that 'mix' the languages. We explored Spanish-English bilingual toddlers' (n = 24) ability to identify familiar words in three conditions: (i) single word…

Joyce, Paul – International Journal of Listening, 2013
This study investigated the application of the speeded lexical decision task to L2 aural processing efficiency. One-hundred and twenty Japanese university students completed an aural word/nonword task. When the variation of lexical decision time (CV) was correlated with reaction time (RT), the results suggested that the single-word recognition…

Connell, Katrina; Hüls, Simone; Martínez-García, Maria Teresa; Qin, Zhen; Shin, Seulgi; Yan, Hanbo; Tremblay, Annie – Language Learning, 2018
This study investigated the use of segmental and suprasegmental cues to lexical stress in word recognition by Mandarin-speaking English learners, Korean-speaking English learners, and native English listeners. Unlike English and Mandarin, Korean does not have lexical stress. Participants completed a visual-world eye-tracking experiment that…

Oganyan, Marina – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Research on recognition of complex words has primarily focused on affixational complexity in concatenative languages. This dissertation investigates both templatic and affixational complexity in Hebrew, a templatic language, with particular focus on the role of the root and template morphemes in recognition. It also explores the role of morphology…

Shen, Wei; Li, Zhao; Tong, Xiuhong – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: This study aimed to investigate the time course of meaning activation of the 2nd morpheme processing of compound words during Chinese spoken word recognition using eye tracking technique with the printed-word paradigm. Method: In the printed-word paradigm, participants were instructed to listen to a spoken target word (e.g., [Chinese…

Ishida, Tomomi – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The present study examined the ambiguity effects in second language (L2) word recognition. Previous studies on first language (L1) lexical processing have observed that ambiguous words are recognized faster and more accurately than unambiguous words on lexical decision tasks. In this research, L1 and L2 speakers of English were asked whether a…

Li, Chuchu; Wang, Min; Davis, Joshua A.; Guan, Connie Qun – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
The present study investigated the representation and processing of segmental and tonal information in visual Chinese word recognition in native and non-native Chinese readers. Two experiments using homophone judgement paradigm were conducted. When judging two Chinese characters (Experiment 1), both groups showed difficulties when the segmental…

Zipke, Marcy – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Two experiments explored the effects of reading digital storybooks on tablet computers with 25 preschoolers, aged 4-5. In the first experiment, the students' word recognition scores were found to increase significantly more when students explored a digital storybook and employed the read-aloud function than when they were read to from a comparable…

Singh, Leher – Journal of Child Language, 2018
The purpose of the current study was to examine effects of bilingual language input on infant word segmentation and on talker generalization. In the present study, monolingually and bilingually exposed infants were compared on their abilities to recognize familiarized words in speech and to maintain generalizable representations of familiarized…

Voß, Stefan; Blumenthal, Yvonne – Education Sciences, 2020
Given the high proportion of struggling readers in school and the long-term negative consequences of underachievement for those affected, the question of prevention options arises. The early identification of central indicators for reading literacy is a noteworthy starting point. In this context, curriculum-based measurements have established…
