The present work investigates the relationship between semantic and prosodic (metric) processing in spoken language under 2 attentional conditions (semantic and metric tasks) by analyzing both behavioral and event-related potential (ERP) data. Participants listened to short sentences ending in semantically and/or metrically congruous or incongruous trisyllabic words. In the metric task, ERP data showed that metrically incongruous words elicited both larger early negative and late positive… Expand
Processing Metrical Information in Silent Reading: An ERP Study
TLDR
Evidence is provided that comprehenders are sensitive to the prosodic properties of the context even in silent reading, such that this sensitivity impacts lexico-semantic processing of individual words. Expand
An event-related potential investigation of lexical pitch-accent processing in auditory Japanese
TLDR
The results suggest that the pitch-accent negativity reflects initial phonological processing followed by lexical access and word recognition, and is interpreted as a general integration process that is common across the three domains. Expand
A behavioral and fMRI examination of the effect of rhythm on reading noun-verb homographs aloud
ABSTRACT These experiments explored the connection between rhythm and reading by examining whether reading is affected by a rhythmic prime that was either congruent or incongruent with the syllabicExpand
The lexical representation of word stress in Russian: Evidence from event-related potentials
This paper explores the processing of metrical structure in Russian, a language with free lexical stress. According to the existing theoretical accounts, not all Russian stems are specified forExpand
Musicians and the Metric Structure of Words
TLDR
Results showed that musical expertise influenced the automatic detection of the syllable temporal structure, the integration of metric structure and its influence on word comprehension, as well as the reanalysis of metric violations (P600 and late positivities effects). Expand
Event-related Brain Potentials Suggest a Late Interaction of Meter and Syntax in the P600
TLDR
First event-related potential evidence that the metric structure of a given language is processed in two stages is provided as evidenced in a biphasic pattern of an early frontal negativity and a late posterior positivity. Expand
“All that glitters is not … alone”. Congruity effects in highly and less predictable sentence contexts
TLDR
It is argued that the early congruity effect for proverbs comprises both a Phonological Mismatch Negativity, reflecting the processing of the acoustic/phonological mismatch between the expected and unexpected sentence completions and a typical N400 semantic congruities effect with an unusual short latency because final words can be predicted from the unusually high contextual constraints of familiar proverbs.

Context influences the processing of verb transitivity in French sentences: more evidence for semantic−syntax interactions*
abstract The influence of semantic context on verb argument structure processing was investigated in two experiments using both ERP and behavioral measures. Participants were presented with sentencesExpand
Do metrical incongruities disrupt semantic processing in modern Chinese? An event-related potential study
TLDR
This study provides convergent evidence that metrical congruities facilitate semantic processing, whereas metrical incongruities disrupt semantic processing. Expand

Modulation of the N400 potential during auditory phonological/semantic interaction.
TLDR
N400 enhancement to semantically unrelated words was systematically observed, whether the subjects heard the sequences passively or actively, and even in contexts where the task did not concern semantic attributes, which suggests that the detection of semantic incongruences is a more robust and automatized mechanism than that of phonological ones.

The Influence of Semantic and Syntactic Context Constraints on Lexical Selection and Integration in Spoken-Word Comprehension as Revealed by ERPs
TLDR
An event-related brain potential experiment was carried out to investigate the influence of semantic and syntactic context constraints on lexical selection and integration in spoken-word comprehension, proclaiming an optimal use of contextual information during spoken- word identification. Expand
Brain potentials during semantic and prosodic processing in French.
TLDR
The finding that the P800 elicited by prosodic mismatch was larger when the sentences were semantically incongruous than congruous suggests that the two processes may be interactive. Expand
Late interaction of syntactic and prosodic processes in sentence comprehension as revealed by ERPs.
TLDR
The aim was to investigate the long discussed relationship between prosody and syntax in online speech comprehension to reveal direct evidence about whether the two information types are interactive or independent from each other, and the method of event-related potentials allowed to sheet light on the precise time course of this relationship. Expand
Event-Related Potential Components Reflect Phonological and Semantic Processing of the Terminal Word of Spoken Sentences
TLDR
An event-related brain potential reflecting the acoustic-phonetic process in the phonological stage of word processing was recorded to the terminal words of spoken sentences and the independence of this response from the ERP component known to be sensitive to semantic violations (N400) was demonstrated. Expand
Prosody-driven Sentence Processing: An Event-related Brain Potential Study
TLDR
The finding that a CPS was identified in all sentence types in correlation to the perception of their major intonational boundaries clearly indicates that this effect is driven purely by prosody. Expand
Electrophysiological Evidence for Early Contextual Influences during Spoken-Word Recognition: N200 Versus N400 Effects
TLDR
It was concluded that the N200 effect is related to the lexical selection process, where word-form information resulting from an initial phonological analysis and content information derived from the context interact. Expand
An ERP correlate of metrical stress in spoken word recognition.
TLDR
It was concluded that the N325, which was larger during stress discrimination than during passive listening, is probably a manifestation of the extraction of metrical stress from the acoustic signal and its transformation into task requirements. Expand
On-line Processing of Pop-Out Words in Spoken French Dialogues
TLDR
By showing that prosodic patterns are processed on-line by listeners in order to understand the informational structure of the message, the present results demonstrate the psychobiological validity of the pragmatic concept of focus, expressed via prosodic cues. Expand
The role of prosodic boundaries in the resolution of lexical embedding in speech comprehension
TLDR
It is argued that cues to lexical-embedding disambiguation, such as segmental lengthening, result from the realization of a prosodic boundary that often but not always follows monosyllabic words, and that lexical candidates whose word boundaries are aligned with prosodic boundaries are favored in the word-recognition process.
