This chapter investigates one of the most studied effect in psycholinguistics: the socalled “semantic priming effect”. After a brief survey of the literature, a lexical decision experiment is presented and investigates two types of “semantic priming” : (1) purely semantic priming without association, and (2) purely associative priming without semantic similarity. Three prime duration were tested in the reported experiment (100, 250, and 500 msec). The results demonstrate the existence of…

A novel co-occurrence-based approach to predict pure associative and semantic priming
TLDR
The present study used co-occurrence statistics of words in sentences to provide a full factorial manipulation of direct association and the number of common associates and suggested that associative and semantic priming can be evoked by computationally determined direct and common associations.
Masked and Unmasked Priming Effects as a Function of Semantic Relatedness and Associative Strength
The study presented in this paper aimed to investigate the pattern of semantic priming effects, under masked and unmasked conditions, in the lexical decision task, manipulating type of semantic
Semantic feature activation takes time: longer SOA elicits earlier priming effects during reading
While most previous studies of “semantic” priming confound associative and semantic relations, here we use a simple co-occurrence-based approach to examine “pure” semantic priming, while
What’s in a link: Associative and taxonomic priming effects in the infant lexicon
Associative and phonological priming effects after letter search on the prime.
TLDR
This experiment examined associative and phonological priming to determine whether priming from phonologically related rhymes would remain after letter search (e.g., "moose-juice"; rhyming items were orthographically dissimilar).
Lexical–semantic priming effects during infancy
TLDR
The results of these experiments indicate that infants have begun to develop semantic–associative links between lexical items as early as 21 months of age.
High-dimensional semantic space accounts of priming q
TLDR
The computational mechanisms required to learn distributed semantic representations for words directly from unsupervised experience with language are examined, and both word context and word order information are found to be necessary to account for trends in the human data.
Semantic Priming Effects in a Lexical Decision Task: Comparing third Graders and College Students in two Different Stimulus Onset Asynchronies
TLDR
Despite the fact that there was no difference between groups in the magnitude of semantic priming effects when SOA was 250ms, at the 500ms SOA their magnitude was bigger in children, corroborating previous studies.
The semantic priming project
TLDR
These data represent the largest behavioral database on semantic priming and are available to researchers to aid in selecting stimuli, testing theories, and reducing potential confounds in their studies.

The effects of associative and semantic priming in the lexical decision task
TLDR
Four lexical decision experiments were conducted to examine under which conditions automatic semantic priming effects can be obtained, and the results are interpreted in the context of models of semantic memory.
Accessing Different Types of Lexical Semantic Information: Evidence From Priming
The types of semantic information that are automatically retrieved from the mental lexicon on hearing a word were investigated in 3 semantic priming experiments. The authors probed for activation of
Is semantic priming due to association strength or feature overlap? A microanalytic review
TLDR
It is concluded that Mediated associates provide the strongest evidence of automatic associative priming, whereas functional associates, synonyms, and antonyms instead support priming based on feature overlap.
Informational constraints on pre-lexical priming
Abstract A popular explanation of automatic semantic priming attributes those effects to the spreading of activation across a meaning-based network in lexical memory. A number of conflicting claims

TLDR
A meta-analysis of 26 studies indicated that automatic semantic priming can occur without association, suggesting that there is an “associative boost” from adding an associative relationship to a semantic one.
Is Automatic Priming Semantic
Experiments were conducted to examine the extent to which automatic priming reflects the retrieval of semantic information, as opposed to the associative/collocational relationships between words.
Effects of Semantic and Associative Relatedness on Automatic Priming
TLDR
It is indicated that semantic similarity, and not associative relatedness, is both necessary and sufficient to produce automatic priming.

Individual and developmental differences in semantic priming: empirical and computational support for a single-mechanism account of lexical processing.
TLDR
The authors provide empirical and computational support for a single-mechanism distributed network account and provide an account of these results in terms of the properties of distributed network models and support this account with an explicit computational simulation.
