Word Misperception, the Neighbor Frequency Effect, and the Role of Sentence Context: Evidence From Eye Movements

Authors: Slattery, T.J.

Journal: Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance

Volume: 35

Issue: 6

Pages: 1969-1975

ISSN: 0096-1523

DOI: 10.1037/a0016894

Abstract:

An eye movement experiment was conducted to investigate whether the processing of a word can be affected by its higher frequency neighbor (HFN). Target words with an HFN (birch) or without one (spruce) were embedded into 2 types of sentence frames: 1 in which the HFN (birth) could fit given the prior sentence context, and 1 in which it could not. The results suggest that words can be misperceived as their HFN, and that top-down information from sentence context strongly modulates this effect. Implications for models of word recognition and eye movements during reading are discussed. © 2009 American Psychological Association.
