Effects of lexical frequency and syntactic complexity in spoken-language comprehension: Evidence from the auditory moving-window technique.
In 2 experiments, a new technique called the auditory moving window was used to investigate aspects of spoken-language processing. Participants paced their way through spoken sentences divided into
Functional parallelism in spoken word-recognition : An introduction
TLDR
Two versions of a “cohort”-based model of the process of spoken word-recognition are described, showing how if evolves from a partially interactive model, where access is strictly autonomous but selection is subject to top-down control, to a fully bottom-up models, where context plays no role in the processes of form-based access and selection.
Phonological, Semantic and Root Activation in Spoken Word Recognition in Arabic: Evidence from Eye Movements.
Spoken word recognition (SWR) is a complex process that includes the activation of word candidates based on the acoustic properties of an input, the selection of the word that best matches these
On-line processing constraints on the properties of signed and spoken language
TLDR
It is argued that the dominantly successive nature of language is largely mode-independent and holds equally for sign and for spoken language, and it is discussed extensively for the word/sign level that online processes are parallel in that they can simultaneously draw on various sources of knowledge, but successive in thatthey can work at the interpretation of only one unit at a time.
The Time Course of Interpretation in Speech Comprehension
Determining how language comprehension proceeds over time has been central to theories of human language use. Early research on the comprehension of speech in real time put special emphasis on the
Phonological and syntactic competition effects in spoken word recognition: evidence from corpus-based statistics
TLDR
FMRI findings indicate that LIFG plays a general role in resolving different kinds of linguistic competition, and suggests that phrasal contexts reduce lexico-phonological competition by eliminating form-class inconsistent cohort candidates.
