1. 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

2. Why was Swinney et als (1976) study an improvement over previous techniques?

  • Online, cross modal priming, not sensitve to other variables and reflect processes as they happen
  • Offline, cross modal priming, not sensitve to other variables and reflect processes as they happen
  • Online, cross modal priming, sensitve to other variables and reflect processes as they happen
  • Offline, cross modal priming, sensitve to other variables and reflect processes as they happen

3. What is the main concept of the semantic feature model?

  • Meanings are represented as collections of semantic features, multiple meanings of a word are incoherent whilst multiple senses arent (easier)
  • Meanings are represented as collections of syntactic features , multiple meanings of a word are incoherent whilst multiple senses arent (easier)

4. In the influential study by Swinney et al (1979) where primes were ambiguous words in a biasing context, what was the EARLY effect of context?

  • There was priming for BOTH appropriate and inappropriate meanings; context had NO effect
  • There was only priming for the APPROPRIATE meaning; context had NO effect
  • There was priming for BOTH appropriate and inappropriate meanings; context had an effect
  • There was only priming for the APPROPRIATE meaning; context had no effect

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

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