Park, Yun-hee; Itakura, Shoji – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
It is unknown whether linguistic cues influence preschoolers' recognition of facial expression when the emotion of the face is incongruent with the linguistic cues and what type of linguistic cue is influential in the modulation of facial expression. In a priming task, we presented 5-year-old children three types of linguistic information…

Zhu, Xinhua; Liao, Xian; Cheong, Choo Mui – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Strategy use is a critical competence for academic achievement and problem solving in globalised and information-based knowledge economies. It involves skills such as synthesising information from task source materials and elaborating on interlocutors' viewpoints during integrated group discussions. However, evidence from empirical studies on this…

Alyami, Maha; Mohsen, Mohammed Ali – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
This article investigates how the use of a deliberate approach of analyzing a given reading may predict differences in CVA effectiveness. Sixty Arab EFL learners were randomly assigned to an experimental group and a control group, thirty participants for each. The experimental group received training in the deliberate Clarke and Nation (System…

Wu, Chenggang; Zhang, Juan – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
In the present study, we examined modulations of the second language (L2) positive emotion-label words, positive emotion-laden words, and neutral words on conflict processing in a flanker task. Twenty Chinese-English bilinguals were instructed to decide the color of the central words that were vertically surrounded by the same words with the same…

Banasik-Jemielniak, Natalia; Bokus, Barbara – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
We explored the topic of irony comprehension by preschoolers. Two hundred and thirty-one children (77 four-year-olds, 89 five-year-olds, and 65 six-year-olds) were tested with the Irony Comprehension Task (ICT, Banasik and Bokus, in: Poster presented at the psycholinguistics conference in Flanders, Berg en Dal, 2012). Participants were asked…

Saini, Sandeep; Sahula, Vineet – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Native language acquisition is one of the initial processes undertaken by the human brain in the infant stage of life. The linguist community has always been interested in finding the method, which is adopted by the human brain to acquire the native language. Word segmentation in one of the most important tasks in acquiring the language.…

Chen, Zhengrong; Caldwell-Harris, Catherine – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
It is common to have good declarative but poor procedural knowledge of a foreign language, especially for classroom learners. To study this gap in a constrained manner, we asked Chinese learners of English to repeat, correct and produce indirect speech. The indirect speech construction was selected in the present study because it is known to be a…

Asadi, Ibrahim A.; Abu-Rabia, Salim – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
This study aimed at examining the impact of phonemes and lexical status on phonological manipulation among pre-school children. Specifically, we tested the impact of phonemic positions (initial vs. final) and lexical status (shared, spoken, standard and pseudo-words) on phonemic isolation performance. Participants were 1012 children from the…

El-Dakhs, Dina Abdel Salam; Altarriba, Jeanette – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current study examines the influence of word type (i.e., emotion-label vs. emotion-laden) and valence (i.e., positive vs. negative vs. neutral) on the processing of emotion words among bilinguals. To this end, three groups of Arabic--English bilinguals (n = 120 per group) completed the tasks of free recall, ratings for concreteness,…

Zhou, Guowei; Chen, Yao; Feng, Yin; Zhou, Rong – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Translation ambiguity, which occurs commonly when one word has more than one possible translation in another language, causes language processing disadvantage. The present study investigated how Chinese--English bilinguals process translation-ambiguous words, and whether it is affected by the second language (L2) proficiency and sentence context,…

de Resende, Natália Carolina Alencar; Mota, Mailce Borges; Seuren, Pieter – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The present study used event-related potentials to investigate whether the processing of grammatical gender agreement involving gender regular and irregular forms recruit the same or distinct neurocognitive mechanisms and whether different grammatical gender agreement conditions elicit the same or diverse ERP signals. Native speakers of Brazilian…

Tarai, Shashikanta; Mukherjee, Rupsha; Qurratul, Quais Ain; Singh, Bikesh Kumar; Bit, Arindam – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Use of prosocial language enhances human cooperation and harmony. Previous research has shown that talking about helping, sharing and giving to others creates positive impression on others, by which individuals and governments gain public approval. So far, the value judgement of approval and disapproval in terms of prosocial or antisocial has not…

Mahler, N. A.; Chenery, H. J. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current investigation examined the developmental changes involved in processing semantic context in auditorily presented sentences, as well as underlying attentional and suppression mechanisms. Thirty-nine typically developing school-aged children aged 6;0-14;0 years participated in the current cross-sectional sentential auditory word…

Zhang, Haomin – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
The current study aimed to explore the effect of first language (L1) orthography on second language (L2) Chinese morphological awareness. One hundred and twenty-nine students (61 L1 English readers and 68 L1 Thai readers) who studied Chinese as a second language participated in this study. They completed four tasks of morphological awareness…

Chen, Tianxu – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Character learning is a key issue for second language (L2) Chinese learners. However, our understanding is limited regarding the extent to which the multilevel linguistic knowledge simultaneously works for learning characters, particularly for L2 compound character meaning retention. To fill these gaps, two research questions were addressed. (1)…
