Lexical boost from the subject noun: the influence of task

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

To test the prediction that the lexical boost is driven by explicit memory (e.g., Chang et al, 2006), we tested for a subject noun boost, using prepositional object or double object structures, when participants could look back to a prime sentence while completing a target sentence (Experiment 1) or not (Experiment 2). We report a subject noun boost but only when participants could see the prime, suggesting that when available, the prime acted as a cue to boost the activation of its structure. These results indicate that the subject noun boost is affected by how explicit the word repetition is.
