Zhang, Haomin; Koda, Keiko – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
The study aimed to explore cross-linguistic contributions of morphological awareness to Chinese reading acquisition among Chinese heritage language (CHL) learners who had grown up speaking Chinese at home, received English medium education throughout schooling, and were studying Chinese at the time of the study. The sample thus represents a…

Han, Jeong-Im; Kim, Joo-Yeon; Choi, Tae-Hwan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
There is evidence that orthographic knowledge can influence on-line spoken-word recognition. Interestingly, when graphic and phonetic codes are not congruent due to the application of phonological alternation processes, people report hearing sounds that are matched to graphic (underlying), not phonetic codes (Hallé et al. in J Mem Lang 43:618-639,…

Wang, Jiajia; Zhang, Jijia; Cui, Zhanling – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
As a basic indicator of verbal ability, verbal fluency refers to the degree of fluency in the use of language to convey information. The different components of working memory play an important role in verbal fluency. The inhibiting control mechanism takes place during L2 production processing in bilinguals, which may affect their verbal fluency…

Yu, Vickie Y. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
This study examined the importance of syllable position, duration, and tone/pitch for the assignment of stress in Chinese hums. Twenty native Mandarin speakers and 20 native English speakers were asked to assign primary stress to two-syllable Chinese hums. The importance of acoustic cues for stress assignment was also evaluated. Our findings…

Winskel, Heather; Kim, Tae-Hoon – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
Mirror invariance or generalisation is the ability to recognise objects as being the same regardless of their spatial orientation. However, when, for example, learning to read Roman script, children need to hone these skills so that they can readily discriminate between mirror letters such as b/d or p/b. Korean Hangul makes a particularly…

Feng, Manni; Sun, Dan; Zhang, Ye – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
It hasn't been clear how holistic and analytic processing contribute to character recognition yet. The current study focused on two issues: (1) whether configural processing is sufficient to support the performance of identifying characters in absence of analytic processing; (2) whether configural processing involves multiple levels of character…

Cui, Gang; Wang, Yuemin; Zhong, Xiaoyun – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
This study aims to investigate the effect of suprasegmental phonological training on connected-text reading comprehension of Chinese university students with different English reading proficiency levels. A sample of 160 freshmen was recruited and randomly divided into experimental and control groups, and the experimental group was given a 12-week…

Kim, Tae-Young; Kim, Youngmi – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
This exploratory study investigates the structural relationship between second language (L2) learning motivation, resilience, motivated behavior, and L2 proficiency among English as a Foreign Language (EFL) students in South Korea. The research questions are as follows: (1) What are the constructs of resilience and L2 learning motivation among L2…

Zhang, Haiwei; Roberts, Leah – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
The importance of phonological awareness (PA) for the acquisition of literacy skills has been widely recognized. Across languages, PA is commonly examined using the Oddity test, however, for Chinese-speaking children, Pinyin invented spelling is recommended as being a more powerful tool to assess PA. However, it is still unclear whether this holds…

Zhao, Licui; Yasunaga, Daichi; Kojima, Haruyuki – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
The present study reported an experiment examining whether both native speakers (NSs) and non-native speakers (NNSs) give formulaic sequences (FSs) priority over novel phrases in processing, as the dual route model has postulated. In this experiment, NSs and NNSs were asked to read Japanese versions of semi-transparent restricted collocations…

Xue, Jin; Hu, Xiaolan; Yan, Rong; Wang, Hong; Chen, Xi; Li, Miao – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
The present study examined the relationship between age of acquisition (AoA) and bilingual development for native Chinese children who learned English as a foreign language. A composite test measuring different aspects of language and cognitive skills in Chinese and English was administered on 85 Chinese native primary schoolers, who received…

Wong, Yu Ka – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
The reciprocal influences between the development of Chinese-as-a-second-language (CSL) listening and reading comprehension among young learners in Hong Kong were evaluated using a 2-year, three-wave longitudinal design. A total of 129 senior primary CSL students were assessed using listening and reading comprehension tests at the end of grades 4,…

Chen, Tianxu – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
Word learning in a second language (L2) is a complex process, which is affected by learner-related (e.g., morphological awareness) and language-related (e.g., word semantic transparency) factors. Morphological awareness is learners' sensitivity to the morphological structure of printed words, and semantic transparency is the degree to which…

Mohsen, Mohammed Ali; Almudawis, Sarah – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
This study aims to investigate the acquisition of vocabulary recognition and vocabulary production in the short- and long-term via listening and reading comprehension activities using Voice® software. Sixty participants were invited to read or listen to two passages in different sessions, that is, three sessions in listening inputs and one session…

Hamedi, Seyyedeh Mina; Pishghadam, Reza – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
Given the fact that the process of engaging and interacting with the text is not only the function of a reader but also the text itself, the current study attempts to examine the role of the type of the word in the attentional engagement. More specifically, the present investigation aims to verify the interplay of sensorimotor information,…
