How many levels of processing are there in lexical access
The patterns of semantic errors in speaking and writing are used to constrain claims about the structure of lexical access mechanisms in speech and written language production. It is argued that itExpand

A critical look at the embodied cognition hypothesis and a new proposal for grounding conceptual content
Many studies have demonstrated that the sensory and motor systems are activated during conceptual processing. Such results have been interpreted as indicating that concepts, and important aspects ofExpand

Lexical selection is not by competition: a reinterpretation of semantic interference and facilitation effects in the picture-word interference paradigm.
The dominant view in the field of lexical access in speech production maintains that selection of a word becomes more difficult as the levels of activation of nontarget words increase--selection byExpand

Dissociation of algorithmic and heuristic processes in language comprehension: Evidence from aphasia
Abstract Three groups of aphasic patients, Broca's, Conduction, and Wernicke's, and a nonaphasic patients control group were tested for comprehension of object-relative center-embedded sentences. TheExpand

The cognate facilitation effect: implications for models of lexical access.
Do nonselected lexical nodes activate their phonological information? Catalan-Spanish bilinguals were asked to name (a) pictures whose names are cognates in the 2 languages (words that areExpand

Cognitive mechanisms in number processing and calculation: Evidence from dyscalculia
This article presents a framework for the cognitive analysis of number processing and calculation. Within this framework the primary objective is the development of a model that is sufficientlyExpand

On drawing inferences about the structure of normal cognitive systems from the analysis of patterns of impaired performance: The case for single-patient studies
An analysis of the logic of valid inferences about the structure of normal cognitive processes from the study of impaired cognitive performance in brain-damaged patients is presented. The logic ofExpand

The structure of graphemic representations
The analysis of the spelling performance of a brain-damaged dysgraphic subject is reported. The subject's spelling performance was affected by various graphotactic factors, such as the distinctionExpand

The acquisition of a new phonological contrast: the case of stop consonants in French-English bilinguals.
Cross‐language studies have shown that Voice Onset Time (VOT) is a sufficient cue to separate initial stop consonants into phonemic categories. The present study used VOT as a linguistic cue inExpand

When more is less: a counterintuitive effect of distractor frequency in the picture-word interference paradigm.
Pictures were shown with superimposed word distractors of high and low frequency. Low-frequency distractors produced greater interference on picture naming than did high-frequency distractors. ThisExpand
