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

2. When is meaning used in the context-guided single-reading lexical access model?

  • a
  • Context is used to restrict access of meanings, so ONLY the contextually appropriate meaning is ever accessed
  • a
  • When an ambiguous word is encountered, ALL meanings are accessed independent of context and contextually appropriate meaning is selected

3. What did Foss (1970) phoneme monitering study show?

  • Phonemes are easier to detect when the preceding context contains an ambiguous word
  • Ambiguous words are not easier to process in a strongly biasing context
  • Phonemes are harder to detect when the preceding context contains an ambiguous word
  • Ambig words are harder to detect when the preceding context contains an ambiguous word

4. What did Mehler, Segui & Carey find when word length was controlled for?

  • Extra processing is still needed for ambiguous words
  • Less processing is needed for ambiguous words
  • Phoneme monitering tasks are justly sensitive

5. What does early research into word reading suggest?

  • We routinely access ALL senses of ambiguous words, context then used to select the most appropriate
  • We routinely access ALL meanings 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
