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

Evidence for a cascade model of lexical access in speech production.
How word production unfolds remains controversial. Serial models posit that phonological encoding begins only after lexical node selection, whereas cascade models hold that it can occur beforeExpand

The relation between syntactic and phonological knowledge in lexical access: evidence from the `tip-of-the-tongue' phenomenon
The relation between access to the syntactic and to the phonological features of words in lexical access is investigated in two experiments. Italian speakers were asked to provide the gender andExpand

Pupillary Stroop effects
We recorded the pupil diameters of participants performing the words’ color-naming Stroop task (i.e., naming the color of a word that names a color). Expand

The specific-word frequency effect: implications for the representation of homophones in speech production.
In a series of experiments, the authors investigated whether naming latencies for homophones (e.g., /nlambdan/) are a function of specific-word frequency (i.e., the frequency of nun) or a function ofExpand

Early Parallel Activation of Semantics and Phonology in Picture Naming: Evidence from a Multiple Linear Regression MEG Study
The time course of brain activation during word production has become an area of increasingly intense investigation in cognitive neuroscience. The predominant view has been that semantic andExpand

Which words are activated during bilingual word production?
Whether words are or are not activated within the lexicon of the nonused language is an important question for accounts of bilingual word production. Prior studies have not led to conclusive results,Expand
