On resolving lexical and postlexical variations in language comprehension: The role of the mental lexicon

Sibrand van Coillie (Dipl. Psych.)



One of our goals in the project was to provide experimental support for phonological fea-tural underspecification which is incorporated in the FUL (Featurally Underspecified Lexicon) model. This was done by conducting psycholinguistic speech comprehension priming experiments in which we focussed on place of articulation features. Our second effort was to investigate whether semantic properties of words that correlate with its grammatical gender aid in retrieving the gender of these words. This was investigated with the aid of speech production priming experiments.
