1. What is the core concept of the ordered access model?

  • We routinely access ALL meanings of ambiguous words, context then used to select the most appropriate
  • We routinely access ALL senses of ambiguous words, context then used to select the most appropriate
  • All senses of the word are initially accessed in order of their individual meaning frequencies; serially checked against context
  • Only the appropriate meaning is ever accessed, inappropriate meanings never accessed

  • Context is dependent on meaning
  • You cannot guess a word simply from its semantic category

5. What was the effect of frequency in Hogabaum, Perfetti (1975)?

  • Pps were slow to detect ambiguity when the word was in its MOST frequent sense
  • Pps were slowest RT when the ambig word was primed, context has an effect
  • Pps were slow to detect ambiguity when the word was in its LEAST frequent sense
  • Pps were fastest RT when the ambig word was primed, context has an effect
