Previous research on open- and closed-class words has revealed the existence of several differences in the processing of these types of vocabulary. In this paper the processing of open- and closed-class words was compared by means of an early electrical brain response, recognition potential (RP), which indexes semantic processing and originates from basal extrastriate areas. The effects of word frequency on closed-class words were also investigated. For these purposes, open- and closed-class… CONTINUE READING
