1. What did Hogabaum, Perfetti (1975) suggest about frequency effects?

  • Because the least frequent sense was 'garden pathed', pps have to reanalyse to fit a dominant meaning with context
  • Because the most frequent sense was 'garden pathed', pps have to reanalyse to fit a subordinate meaning with context
  • Because the least frequent sense was 'garden pathed', pps have to reanalyse to fit a subordinate meaning with context

2. In a study by Tabossi & Zardon (1993), what was the effect of a subordinate constraining context?

  • Support for multiple access model
  • Support for selective priming
  • Support for a strong modular account

3. What does early research into word reading suggest?

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

4. What does it mean if a word has balanced frequency?

  • All alternative meanings are equally common in the language
  • All alternative meanings have different frequencies in the language, one meaning is dominant

5. In an early, autonomous model, why do less frequent meanings need longer processing time?

  • Because they need more evidence --> activation to be considered appropriate
  • Because they need less evidence --> activation to be considered appropriate
  • Because they are harder to activate
  • Becasue they are easier to activate
