Short-term memory deficits and long-term learning: Beyond phonology
Short-term memory (STM) is comprised of dissociable phonological, semantic and syntactic components (Martin, 1993). Previous findings indicate phonological STM capacity supports learning of novel phonological forms, such ...
The role of executive control in garden path reinterpretation
Language comprehension is a complex process in which multiple, including semantic and syntactic, representations of the material are constructed as the input unfolds. Sometimes more than one way to interpret a sentence or ...
Characterizing the representations mediating long-term cross-modality priming for words
The present studies attempt to characterize the representations that support long-term, cross-modality priming, with the main hypothesis being that auditory-to-visual priming for words is supported by phonological ...
Mechanisms and scope of planning in language production
Two series of experiments were conducted in relation to the issues of how speakers select and plan linguistic representations during language production. The first was an aging and individual differences study relating ...
The role of phonological short-term retention in new vocabulary acquisition
This study explored the hypothesis that short-term phonological storage may play an important role in new vocabulary acquisition and that complex working memory capacity (as measured by operation span) contributes nothing ...
Semantic and phonological representations in immediate sentence repetition
Three experiments were conducted adopting the same paradigm used by Potter and Lombardi (1990) with two different types of lure words, 'only semantically related' and 'both semantically and phonologically related'. Stimuli ...
