Masked morphological priming tracks the development of a fully mature lexical system in L2

Journal: 

Journal of Memory and Language

Date: 

June, 2019

This paper investigates masked orthographic and morphological priming in L1 Italian, L2 English readers, whose L2 proficiency profile was assessed with a wide battery of tests. Read more by clicking on the title or, to see what we found, check out our pre-print here

 

Augmented Modality Exclusivity Norms for Concrete and Abstract Italian Property Words

Journal: 

Journal of Cognition

Date: 

May, 2019

We developed a new set of modality exclusivity norms for 643 Italian concrete and abstract words, which we augmented with a number of ratings-based (e.g., familiarity, age of acquisition) and corpus-based covariates (e.g., frequency, contextual diversity). [Read more by clicking on the title.]

Semantic activation of embedded stems in the presence or absence of a morphological structure

Journal: 

Psychonomic Bulletin and Review

Date: 

February, 2019

In this paper we investigate the effect of embedded words (e.g., HAT in THAT), and whether/how this is modulated by morphological structure. To learn more about what we found, click on the title or go straight to our pre-print.

Orthographic consistency influences morphological processing in reading aloud: Evidence from a cross-linguistic study

Journal: 

Developmental Science

Date: 

November, 2018

This is a cross-linguistic experiment that we were involved in by Betty Mousikou and Sascha Schroeder. We test children's reading of morphologically structured words and nonwords in English, German, Italian and French, and find that orthographic consistency modulates the role of morphemes in reading aloud.

Consistency measures individuate dissociating semantic activation networks in priming paradigms: A new look on semantics in the processing of (complex) words

Journal: 

Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology

Date: 

June, 2018

Here we show (again, see Marelli et al., QJEP 2015, Marelli and Amenta, in press at BRM, and Amenta et al., PBR 2017) how the reading/language system is sensitive to islands of (probabilistic) regularity in the mapping between form and language. In particular, we show how this qualifies priming patterns, both morphological and semantic, masked and overt. [Read more by clicking on the title.]
