The nature of pre-lexical units: A new approach to an old debate - Holger Mitterer

Mon, 2013-06-03 10:00 - 11:30
Goodman Cancer Research Centre, Room 501 : 1200 Pine Avenue West
Price: Free

Abstract:

One of the fundamental questions in spoken-word recognition has been the nature of the units that mediate between auditory input and lexical items. However, no consensus could be reached, and different methods favored different types of units (syllables, phonemes, features, etc.). Maybe as a consequence, episodic models of the mental lexicon claimed that there were no intermediate units, and the lexicon simply stored multiple exemplars of auditory traces for each word.
