All were monolingual students at the University at Albany, and participated in partial fulfillment of the introductory psychology course requirements. Similarly, for non-word primes, facilitation following morphologically structured but not non-suffixed primes Longtin and Meunier, is consistent with this account but see Beyersmann et al.

It revealed that both prime type and its interaction with SOA as a linear term were statistically significant.

A framework for word reading and for morphological processing in particular, with an initial stage devoted to the orthographic properties of the input while remaining stubbornly independent of meaning, unnecessarily deprives that stage of a potentially useful source of information. There was no mention of the primes in the instructions.

Second, and crucially, this enables us to exploit the power of non-linear regression to define the best-fitting line or curve, if justified by the data to account for the observed results Further, meta-analysis contrasting semantically similar and semantically dissimilar primes demonstrates the risk of interpreting individual null findings.

Therefore, to allay concerns that compounds could fabricate the early effect of semantic similarity between primes and targets, we ran two additional models: a removing only compound prime words 16 pairs and b removing all targets that were paired with a compound in any of the prime conditions nine targets with each of its three primes.

It remains potentially informative to examine in more detail the pattern of facilitation at individual short SOAs because of claims that early processing relies on morpho-orthographic but not semantic properties of the prime, in which case differences between similar and dissimilar prime-target pairs viz.

Previous studies using a masked priming manipulation report statistically equivalent facilitation for true prefixed or suffixed morphological derivations, and for primes that appear to be morphologically complex words but are not -ER occurs as a suffix in English words such as FARMER but is a pseudosuffix in the word CORNER.

Findings of near simultaneous access to the ortho-phonological and semantic properties of whole words are central to some current neurophysiological theories of lexical processing.

Finally, both accounts differ from those whose core claim is that form and meaning processes mutually shape each other.

B Effects of meaning that increase as SOA increases. C Main effect of form and an effect of meaning that is present at the onset but increases over time. In both analyses, similar to the previous post hoc analysis over the shortest SOAs 34—67 msthe interaction of SOA with similar vs.
