  1. 1. Processing coordinated verb phrases : the relevance of lexical-semantic, conceptual, and contextual information towards establishing verbal parallelism

    Författare :Damon Tutunjian; The University of Michigan; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; psycholinguistics; sentence processing; coordination; eyetracking; word-by-word reading.;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation examines the influence of lexical-semantic representations, conceptual similarity, and contextual fit on the processing of coordinated verb phrases. The study integrates information gleaned from current linguistic theory with current psycholinguistic approaches to examining the processing of coordinated verb phrases. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Neural and behavioural mechanisms underlying the processing of negated meanings : Words, pictures and sentences

    Författare :Sara Farshchi; Kognition och Discourse@Lund (SKD@L) Språk; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; negation; scalar meanings; artificial language learning; EEG; ERP; semantic incongruities; N400; P600; sentence processing; auditory processing;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis combines a number of methodologies and measures in order to address the processing of two types of negation (with not and un) in relation to each other and to non-negated affirmative meanings. The four investigations in this thesis target the processing of these meanings at different levels, namely the word level (Study 1) and sentence level (Studies 2–4). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Dyslexics' phonological processing in relation to speech perception

    Författare :Michael Gruber; Åke Olofsson; Peter Juslin; Maria Mody; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Dyslexia; speech perception; phonological representations; reading acquisition; sine wave speech; phonological deficit hypothesis; phonological awareness; phonological processing; orthographic processing; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : The general aim of this thesis was to investigate phonological processing skills in dyslexic children and adults and their relation to speech perception. Dyslexia can be studied at various levels: at a biological, cognitive and an environmental level. This thesis mainly looks at environmental and cognitive factors. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Reading expectations : How expectations influence our reading, eye movements, opinions, and judgments

    Författare :Alexander Strukelj; Kognition och Discourse@Lund (SKD@L) Språk; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; antonyms; cognitive linguistics; confirmation bias; expectations; experimental pragmatics; eye movements: reading; eye tracking; headlines; implicit and explicit detection of incongruities; myside bias; opinion shift; paragraph reading; processing; reading; sentence judgment; visual analog scale;

    Sammanfattning : The way we view the world is constantly affected by our expectations. The aim of this book is to determine how expectations affect the way we read. This will help us better understand how we process information, and how our expectations may change the way we read. The research is situated in experimental pragmatics and reading research. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Prosody and Prediction in Neural Speech Processing

    Författare :Pelle Söderström; Allmän språkvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Linguistics; ERP; fMRI; Prediction; Prosody; Syntax; speech processing; PrAN;

    Sammanfattning : The present thesis investigated how listeners use prosody to rapidly predict upcoming lexical and syntactic structures. In the first three studies, it was shown that listeners take advantage of Swedish word-level tones to pre- activate upcoming word endings. LÄS MER
