Recent research has shown that coherence judgements of semantically related word triads are facilitated by a subtle positive response triggered by their increased fluency of processing. Such positive affective response serves as a cue indicating semantic coherence. However, we argue that the fluency of processing is not the only source of affective response(More)
Evaluative conditioning (EC) is considered to play an important role in the attitude formation. One of the ongoing debates in this field concerns the impact of contingency awareness (i.e., awareness of the contingent relationship between conditioned and unconditioned stimulus, CS-US) on the EC occurrence. Despite the claims that EC does not require(More)

The present paper investigates whether processing fluency may indicate semantic incoherence as well. In two studies, we employ a new paradigm in which(More)
