Eren, Ömer; Kiliç, Mehmet; Bada, Erdogan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
Language learners' actual speech performances constitute an essential aspect of studies on second language learning and teaching. Although there is ample research on fluency and pauses in English, current literature does not touch on this issue from a multilingual perspective by comparing both read and spontaneous speech performances. In this…

Park, Jeong Hyun; Kuo, Li-Jen; Dixon, Quentin; Kim, Haemin – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
Lexical stress plays a critical role in multisyllabic word reading in English. However, assignment of English lexical stress, which is neither fixed nor marked in writing, can pose significant challenges for English learners and has not been well-understood. The present study aims to fill the research gap by studying sensitivity to lexical stress…

Xu, Li; Naserpour, Azam; Rezai, Afsheen; Namaziandost, Ehsan; Azizi, Zeinab – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
Owing to the limitations of linguistic modes to portray aptly L2 learners' metaphors of language learning experience, growing attention has been paid to taking advantage of other modes like visual ones to ameliorate this concern. Hence, the present study sought to explore images and metaphors Iranian EFL learners may have in mind about the essence…

Using the Visual World Paradigm, the current study aimed to explore whether the mass/count distinction is determined by syntax in Mandarin Chinese, focusing on classified nouns in nominal phrases. By using dual-role classifiers, ontological count and mass nouns, and phrase structures with and without biased syntactic cues we found that the…

Ferdowsi, Sima; Razmi, Mohammad Hasan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
Simultaneous interpreting (SI) is a cognitively complex activity due to the concurrent nature of receiving and producing messages. Previous research confirms that SI is profoundly influenced by cognitive, attitudinal, and psychological mechanisms. Following this line of enquiry, the present investigation proposes a unique model by integrating…

Jiang, Fan; Kennison, Shelia – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
The current study investigates the influence of L2 English learners' belief about their interlocutor's English proficiency on phonetic accommodation and explores whether interaction-induced phonetic convergence could improve L2 English learners' vowel pronunciation. Results from two experiments show that when the subjects believed that their…

Peel, Hayden J.; Royals, Kayla A.; Chouinard, Philippe A. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
It is widely assumed that subliminal word priming is case insensitive and that a short SOA (< 100 ms) is required to observe any effects. Here we attempted to replicate results from an influential study with the inclusion of a longer SOA to re-examine these assumptions. Participants performed a semantic categorisation task on visible word…

Zhang, Haomin; Pei, Zhenxia – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
This study explored the role of word knowledge dimensions in second language (L2) word-meaning inference. College-level L2 learners (N = 121) participated in this study and completed a series of word knowledge tests including vocabulary size, word associates, morpheme-form knowledge, morpheme-meaning knowledge, morpheme discrimination, and…

Tang, Ming; Chan, Shui Duen – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2022
This study investigated the effects of semantic transparency of Chinese suon Chinese as a second language (CSL) learners' incidental learning of word meanings in sentence-level reading and passage-level reading. The accuracy of the learners' lexical inferencing was compared among various types of words (transparent, semi-transparent, and opaque…
