Abstract

The influence of context on AoA is explored in a series of single-word naming experiments. Participants were asked to name target words critically manipulated on AoA embedded in lists containing filler items of varying frequency and imageability. Findings demonstrate that AoA is differentially affected by context and that visual word recognition is under the strategic control of readers. Moreover, frequency (a lexical variable) and imageability (a lexical-semantic variable) appear to influence AoA to the same extent, at least in a transparent orthography such as Turkish. The implications for theoretical models are discussed.
