de Resende, Natália Carolina Alencar; Mota, Mailce Borges; Seuren, Pieter – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The present study used event-related potentials to investigate whether the processing of grammatical gender agreement involving gender regular and irregular forms recruit the same or distinct neurocognitive mechanisms and whether different grammatical gender agreement conditions elicit the same or diverse ERP signals. Native speakers of Brazilian…

Tarai, Shashikanta; Mukherjee, Rupsha; Qurratul, Quais Ain; Singh, Bikesh Kumar; Bit, Arindam – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Use of prosocial language enhances human cooperation and harmony. Previous research has shown that talking about helping, sharing and giving to others creates positive impression on others, by which individuals and governments gain public approval. So far, the value judgement of approval and disapproval in terms of prosocial or antisocial has not…

Mahler, N. A.; Chenery, H. J. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current investigation examined the developmental changes involved in processing semantic context in auditorily presented sentences, as well as underlying attentional and suppression mechanisms. Thirty-nine typically developing school-aged children aged 6;0-14;0 years participated in the current cross-sectional sentential auditory word…

Zhang, Haomin – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current study aimed to explore the effect of first language (L1) orthography on second language (L2) Chinese morphological awareness. One hundred and twenty-nine students (61 L1 English readers and 68 L1 Thai readers) who studied Chinese as a second language participated in this study. They completed four tasks of morphological awareness…

Chen, Tianxu – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Character learning is a key issue for second language (L2) Chinese learners. However, our understanding is limited regarding the extent to which the multilevel linguistic knowledge simultaneously works for learning characters, particularly for L2 compound character meaning retention. To fill these gaps, two research questions were addressed. (1)…

Vivas, Leticia; Manoiloff, Laura; García, Adolfo M.; Lizarralde, Francisco; Vivas, Jorge – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The processes tapped by the widely-used word association (WA) paradigm remain a matter of debate: while some authors consider them as driven by lexical co-occurrences, others emphasize the role of meaning-based connections. To test these contrastive hypotheses, we analyzed responses in a WA task in terms of their normative defining features (those…

Lu, Aitao; Wang, Lu; Guo, Yuyang; Zeng, Jiahong; Zheng, Dongping; Wang, Xiaolu; Shao, Yulan; Wang, Ruiming – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current study investigated the mechanism of language switching in unbalanced visual unimodal bilinguals as well as balanced and unbalanced bimodal bilinguals during a picture naming task. All three groups exhibited significant switch costs across two languages, with symmetrical switch cost in balanced bimodal bilinguals and asymmetrical switch…

Chen, Hui-Ching; Szendroi, Krista; Crain, Stephen; Höhle, Barbara – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
This study investigated whether Mandarin speakers interpret prosodic information as focus markers in a sentence-picture verification task. Previous production studies have shown that both Mandarin-speaking adults and Mandarin-speaking children mark focus by prosodic information (Ouyang and Kaiser in Lang Cogn Neurosc 30(1-2):57-72, 2014; Yang and…

Zuniga, Michael; Simard, Daphnée – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Self-repairs, that is revisions of speech that speakers themselves initiate and complete (Salonen and Laakso in J Child Lang 36:859, 2009. https://doi.org/10.1017/s0305000908009240), are frequently used to observe the cognitive and linguistic processes underlying second language (L2) speech production. Previous research has shown that factors such…

Ishkhanyan, Byurakn; Boye, Kasper; Mogensen, Jesper – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The interaction between working memory and language processing is widely discussed in cognitive research. However, those studies often explore the relationship between language comprehension and working memory (WM). The role of WM is rarely considered in language production, despite some evidence suggesting a relationship between the two cognitive…

Chan, Tracy K. S.; Wong, Simpson W. L.; Wong, Anita M.-Y.; Leung, Vina Wing-Hei – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Past studies have shown that multimodal presentation of story can improve story-retelling performance in the first language. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether similar multimedia effects can be observed in second language learning and graphic novel reading. A total of 51 Chinese elementary school children, aged 7-8, who…

Kim, Tae-Young; Kim, Youngmi; Kim, Ji-Young – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current study aims to explore the influence of resilience on (de)motivation and second language proficiency among elementary school students in South Korea. A total of 367 sixth-grade students completed questionnaires at three elementary schools. The data were analyzed with factor analysis and structural equation modeling (SEM). The results…

Moon-gun, Ji,; Baek, Seunghyun – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current study investigated the potential components that affect second language (L2; English) literacy acquisition and cause-and-effect relationships of those factors to L2 reading comprehension via a structural equation model, with the recruitment of 129 4th-graders learning English as a foreign language. This study consists of two levels of…

Zhou, Peng; Zhan, Likan; Ma, Huimin – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Sentence comprehension relies on the abilities to rapidly integrate different types of linguistic and non-linguistic information. The present study investigated whether Mandarin-speaking preschool children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are able to use verb information predictively to anticipate the upcoming linguistic input during real-time…

Nowbakht, Mohammad – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
This study is designed to explore the role of second language (L2) English learners' working memory (WM), language proficiency, and age in the processing and comprehension of English anaphoric sentences. To this end, 40 EFL learners participated in the study. The proficiency levels of the participants varied from elementary to high-intermediate,…
