Abstract

This experiment was designed around a discrimination task concerning the view that recognition of words involves consulting the internal lexicon. The problem here was to distinguish between English and nonsense words previously recorded on tape. [...] The results of the experiment support a retrieval model involving a certain dependence between successive decisions about whether each of the heard strings is English or nonsense.
