In this study we introduce an information-theoretical formulation of the emergence of type- and token-based effects in morphological processing. We describe a probabilistic measure of the informational complexity of a word, its information residual, which encompasses the combined influences of the amount of information contained by the target word and the(More)
" The lex ica1 representation of Serbo-Croatian nouns was investigated in a lexical decision task" Because Serbo-Croatian nouns are declined, a noun may appear in one of several grammatical cases distinguished by the inflectional morpheme affixed to the base form. The grammatical cases occur with different frequencies although some are visually and(More)
We examined the contribution of semantics to morphological facilitation in the visual lexical decision task at two stimulus onset asynchronies (SOAs) with Serbian materials. Primes appeared in Roman or Cyrillic characters. Targets always were printed in Roman. When primes were presented at an SOA of 250 msec, decision latencies to verbal targets (e.g.,(More)
We used a cross-modal priming procedure to explore the processing of irregular and regular English verb forms in both monolinguals and bilinguals (Serbian-English, Chinese-English). Materials included irregular nested stem (drawn-DRAW), irregular change stem (ran-RUN), and regular past tense-present tense verb pairs that were either low (guided-GUIDE) or(More)
In normal linguistic usage, the inflected nouns of Serbo-Croatian are usually preceded by prepositions that help to specify which particular grammatical case is intended and to stress the noun's function in the sentence. In a lexical decision task it was demonstrated that lexical decision times to nouns in a grammatical case that demands a preposition were(More)
A n experiment was conducted in the 5 erbo-Croatian language in which native speakers/readers made lexical decisions on inflected nouns and legally inflected pseudonouns following inflected possessive pronouns. A possessive pronoun and the noun or pseudonoun that followed it could agree in case, gender, and number (0 violations), disagree in eithe1' case or(More)
Single-word, low-constraint adjective contexts were used to "prime" lexical decision to noun targets in Serbo-Croat. Semantically congruent situations consisted of adjective-noun pairs that were not highly predictable but were nonetheless plausible (e.g., GOOD-AUNT). Semantically incongruent situations used pairs that were implausible (e.g., SLOW-COAT). All(More)
BACKGROUND Two pairs of sagittal longitudinal striae, medial and lateral, are slender bundles of fibers located on the dorsal surface of corpus callosum, situated deeply in the longitudinal fissure of telencephalon. Imbedded in the structure of tiny gyrus, indusium griseum, they are, in fact, supracallosal fibers of the fornix, previously called fornix(More)
