Ghaffarvand Mokari, Payam; Werner, Stefan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The present study attempts to extend the research on the effects of phonetic training on the production and perception of second-language (L2) vowels. We also examined whether success in learning L2 vowels through high-variability intensive phonetic training is related to the learners' general musical abilities. Forty Azerbaijani learners of…

Zhou, Peng; Ma, Weiyi – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The present study investigated whether and how fast young children can use information encoded in morphological markers during real-time event representation. Using the visual world paradigm, we tested 35 adults, 34 5-year-olds and 33 3-year-olds. The results showed that the adults, the 5-year-olds and the 3-year-olds all exhibited eye gaze…

Shoghi Javan, Sara; Ghonsooly, Behzad – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The complicated cognitive processes involved in natural (primary) bilingualism lead to significant cognitive development. Executive functions as a fundamental component of human cognition are deemed to be affected by language learning. To date, a large number of studies have investigated how natural (primary) bilingualism influences executive…

Zhao, Xu; Berent, Iris – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Across languages, certain syllable types are systematically preferred to others (e.g., "blif" ? "bnif" ? "bdif" ? "lbif" where ? indicates a preference). Previous research has shown that these preferences are active in the brains of individual speakers, they are evident even when none of these syllable types…

Li, Rui; Zhang, Zhiyi; Ni, Chuanbin; Xiao, Wei; Wei, Junyan; Dai, Haoyun – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
To investigate the grammatical constraints of code-switching (CS hereafter) under the disputes of "the constraint-based account" versus "the constraint-free account," the effects of functional category on CS have long been investigated in the existing studies. Thus, the present study, by asking 47 participants to take part in…

Lee, Chao-Yang; Zhang, Yu – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The purpose of this study is to investigate the interaction between processing lexical and speaker-specific information in spoken word recognition. The specific question is whether repetition and semantic/associative priming is reduced when the prime and target are produced by different speakers. In Experiment 1, the prime and target were repeated…

Lin, Dan; Chen, Guangyao; Liu, Yingyi; Liu, Jiaxin; Pan, Jue; Mo, Lei – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Storybook reading is the major source of literacy exposure for beginning readers. The present study tracked 4-year-old Chinese children's eye movements while they were reading simulated storybook pages. Their eye-movement patterns were examined in relation to their word learning gains. The same reading list, consisting of 20 two-character Chinese…

Lifshitz-Ben-Basat, Adi; Mashal, Nira – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a noninvasive tool to facilitate brain plasticity and enhance language abilities. Our study aims to search for a potential beneficial influence of tDCS on a cognitive linguistic task of naming which found to decline during aging. A group of fifteen healthy old adults (M = 64.93 ± 5.09 years) were…

Lau, Kit-ling – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
This study used both quantitative and qualitative methods to explore the role of lower- and higher-level language skills in classical Chinese (CC) text comprehension. A CC word and sentence translation test, text comprehension test, and questionnaire were administered to 393 Secondary Four students; and 12 of these were randomly selected to…

Siriwittayakorn, Teeranoot – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
In typological literature, there has been disagreement as to whether there should be distinction between relative clauses (RCs) and nominal sentential complements (NSCs) in pro-drop languages such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Khmer and Thai. In pro-drop languages, nouns can be dropped when its reference can be retrieved from context. Therefore,…

James, Lori E.; Schmank, Christopher J.; Castro, Nichol; Buchanan, Tony W. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
We tested the frequent assumption that the difficulty of word retrieval increases when a speaker is being observed and evaluated. We modified the Trier Social Stress Test (TSST) so that participants believed that its evaluative observation components continued throughout the duration of a subsequent word retrieval task, and measured participants'…

Kobayashi, Yuki; Sugioka, Yoko; Ito, Takane – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
An event-related potential experiment was conducted in order to investigate readers' response to violations in the hierarchical structure of functional categories in Japanese, an agglutinative language where functional heads like Negation (Neg) as well as Tense (Tns) are realized as suffixes. A left-lateralized negativity followed by a P600 was…

Yano, Masataka; Suzuki, Yui; Koizumi, Masatoshi – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
The present study examined the locus responsible for the effect of emotional state on sentence processing in healthy native speakers of Japanese, using event-related brain potentials. The participants were induced into a happy, neutral, or sad mood and then subjected to electroencephalogram recording during which emotionally neutral sentences,…

Ebadi, Saman; Weisi, Hiwa; Khaksar, Zahra – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Grit as an interesting and significant topic in psychology has been associated with better study habits and higher grades through perseverance and passion for long term goals. The only available measurement instrument of grit (Duckworth et al. in "J Personal Soc Psychol" 92:1087-1101, 2007) is general both in terms of its subject matter…

Liang, Hsin-Yi; Kelsen, Brent – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Personality and motivation have been identified as influential variables associated with foreign language learning; however, few studies have investigated their effect on oral presentations. This study addresses the importance of both personality and motivation in students' collaborative oral presentation performance. A Big Five personality trait…
