Mancuso, Azzurra; Elia, Annibale; Laudanna, Alessandro; Vietri, Simonetta – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Idioms have been traditionally described as fixed expressions, highly restricted in their realization. Corpus and experimental studies, however, have shown that they are more variable than previously thought. The issue of idiom syntax has received a renewed interest, since it also addresses the problem of how idioms are mentally stored. Another…

Lee, Ju Seong; Lee, Kilryoung – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
This study investigated the role of the L2 motivational self system on L2 willingness to communicate (L2 WTC) by Korean EFL university and secondary students. Drawing on a purposive sampling technique and an explanatory sequential mixed methods design, quantitative data (105 university and 112 high school students) were first collected and…

Feinmann, Diego – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
This study investigates whether there is a relation between how motion is linguistically expressed and how it is conceptualised. To do this, native speakers of two languages that differ typologically in how they encode telic motion (English and Spanish) are compared in both a verbal and a non-verbal experiment. The preferred non-verbal methods to…

Commodari, Elena; Guarnera, Maria; Di Stefano, Andrea; Di Nuovo, Santo – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Reading in alphabetic orthography requires analysis and recognition of specific attributes of visual stimuli, and generation, reactivation, and use of mental images of letters and words. This study evaluated the role of visual analysis and mental imagery in reading performances of students at different stages of reading acquisition. Reading…

Rezaei, Akbar; Mousanezhad Jeddi, Elnaz – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
This study aimed to examine the relationship between the components of attentional control, phonological awareness, and working memory with reading. 209 students (109 females and 150 males with the mean age of 9 years) completed Integrated Visual and Auditory Continuous Performance Test, digit span subscale of WISC-IV, Reading Test, and…

Goswami, Upashana; Nirmala, S. R.; Vikram, C. M.; Kalita, Sishir; Prasanna, S. R. M. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Imprecise articulation is the major issue reported in various types of dysarthria. Detection of articulation errors can help in diagnosis. The cues derived from both the burst and the formant transitions contribute to the discrimination of place of articulation of stops. It is believed that any acoustic deviations in stops due to articulation…

Lu, Aitao; Zhang, Jijia; Zhang, Ye; Li, Meirong; Hong, Xiuxiu; Zheng, Dongping; Deng, Ruchen – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
It is well known that the semantic features of gender associated with peoples' names are represented in the conceptual semantic system. However, there is scant evidence that such knowledge plays a role in name comprehension, and if so, in which processing stage this occurs. The aim of this study was to provide evidence concerning the time course…

Chen, Donggui; Wang, Ruiming; Zhang, Jinqiao; Liu, Cong – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
We used delayed sentence-picture verification tasks to investigate multilingual perceptual representations. In experiment 1, participants listened to sentences with implied shapes. After a 10-min interval, they judged whether pictures had been mentioned in the preceding sentences or not. Results in experiment 1 showed significant match effect in…

Sun, Jing; Zhao, Weiqi; Pae, Hye K. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Chinese coordinative compound words are common and unique in inter-character semantic and orthographic relationships. This study explored the inter-character orthographic similarity effects on the recognition of transparent two-morpheme coordinative compound words. Seventy-two native Chinese readers participated in a lexical decision task. The…

Parrill, Fey; Blocton, Alexsis; Veta, Paige; Lowery, Mary; Schneider, Ava – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
The presence of a human figure in a scene appears to change how people describe it. About 20% of participants take the human figure's viewpoint (Tversky and Hard in Cognition 110:124-129, 2009. http://doi.org/10.1016/j.cognition.2008.10.008). Five exploratory studies compare descriptions of a scene with no person to descriptions of a scene with a…

Jiang, Michael Yi-chao; Jong, Morris Siu-yung; Tse, Chi-shing; Chai, Ching-sing – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
This study examines whether semantic relatedness facilitates or impedes the acquisition of English collocations by conducting two experiments respectively on Chinese undergraduates. Each experiment was composed of a reading session, a productive test, and a receptive test. Experiment 1 began with the reading session of 28 paired-up words and their…

Batel, Essa – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
This study tested the effect of constraining sentence context on word recognition time (RT) in the first and second language. Native (L1) and nonnative (L2) speakers of English performed self-paced reading and listening tasks to see whether a semantically-rich preceding context would lead to the activation of a probable upcoming word prior to…

Schneider, Cosima; Bade, Nadine; Janczyk, Markus – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Informally speaking, presuppositions are meaning components which are part of the common ground for speakers in a conversation, that is, background information which is taken for granted by interlocutors. The current literature suggests an immediate processing of presuppositions, starting directly on the word triggering the presupposition. In the…

Tran, An H.; Tremblay, Kathryn A.; Binder, Katherine S. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine the factor structure of vocabulary. We believe that not only is vocabulary multidimensional, but depth of vocabulary knowledge should also be assessed with multiple measures since it too, is composed of multiple aspects. Furthermore, to explore the predictive validity of the different aspects of vocabulary…

Aleksandrov, Aleksander A.; Memetova, Kristina S.; Stankevich, Lyudmila N.; Knyazeva, Veronika M.; Shtyrov, Yury – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2020
Lexical ERPs (event-related potentials) obtained in an oddball paradigm were suggested to be an index of the formation of new word representations in the brain in the learning process: with increased exposure to new lexemes, the ERP amplitude grows, which is interpreted as a signature of a new memory-trace build-up and activation. Previous…
