Phonotactic well-formedness has an effect on speech processing. This is likely due to an independent sub-lexical representation of phonotactics. Researching that knowledge requires isolating it from indirect effects. A prominent indirect effect comes via lexical neighbourhood. The better phonotactically a word is, the more neighbours it has, the harder it is to recognise it. The present study examined the sublexical effect for phonotactically good word onsets with auditory priming. Word… CONTINUE READING
