Only one meaning of an ambiguous word (e.g., bank) is activated upon word presentation.
Low-frequency words are more quickly accessed than are high-frequency words.
For bilinguals, a given concept has only one entry in the mental lexicon.
The mental lexicon is part of semantic memory.

Question 9

Chomsky’s approach to how we engage in language is termed:
transformational grammar.
constraint-based grammar.
phonetic grammar.
syntactic based grammar.

Question 10

You are taking a test about language. Your ability to think about language in order to complete the test is an example of which design feature?

productivity
arbitrariness
reflectiveness
semanticity

Question 11

About how many phonemes make up American English?

25
45
105

Question 12

The most impressive evidence that animals are indeed capable of learning language comes from the research done with:

Alex.
Rockie.
Washoe.

Question 13

The story grammar approach basically applies which notion (from sentence comprehension) to the comprehension of stories and larger units of discourse?

case grammar
parsing
morphology
constraint-based grammar


Question 14

What is parsing?

the process of accessing word meaning 
the process of converting syntax into semantics
 the process of identifying the component elements of a sentence
the process of mapping the look of a word onto the sound of a word

 Question 15

Anaphors are more likely to result in the successful retrieval of an appropriate antecedent when:
the antecedent has occurred recently.
the antecedent received first mention.
both factors mentioned in a and b are important.
neither factor mentioned in a and b are important.

Question 16
______ represents a phonetic difference (but not a phonemic difference).

The “g” in dog and the “g” in log
The “d” in dog and the “l” in log
The “t” in pit and the “th” in with
The “p” in pit and the “s” in sit


Question 17

In their research with Kanzi and other bonobo chimps, Savage-Rumbaugh and colleagues have investigated whether language can be acquired in the form of:
American Sign Language.
Braille.
motioning.
lexigrams.


Question 18

High frequency words like robin receive _____ fixation as/than low-frequency words like penguin.

the same amount of
more
less

 Question 19

Which of these describes the bottom-up processes in reading?
Reading is aided by expectations.
Reading is aided by context.
Reading is aided by other words.
Reading requires analysis of the printed symbols.

Question 20

Dyslexics have particular trouble:

reading words in the correct order.
recognizing words when they hear them.
mapping the look of a word onto its sound.
 performing normally on standard measures of intelligence.

Question 21

Rayner, White, Johnson, and Liversedge (2006) examined fixation times for words that were normal or jumbled.  They found that:

words with the internal letters transposed had the longest fixation times.
words with the initial letter transposed had the longest fixation times. 
fixation times for normal words and for words with ending letters transposed were the same.
there was no difference between words with internal, ending, or beginning letters transposed.

Question 22

The concept of a ________ comes from Bartlett's classic research on story recall.
 story grammar
 proposition
 script
 schema

Question 23

Gricean maxims in language indicate that our conversational partners should conform to all of the following 
EXCEPT:
avoidance of ambiguity.
relevance.
grammatical correctness.
truthfulness.

Question 24

All of the following statements are true about “motherese” EXCEPT:

it tends to be higher pitched than normal speech.
it is found across many different languages.
it features exaggerated ups and downs in pitch.
it tends to be faster than normal speech.

 Question 25

Which of these is NOT an assumption of the construction-integration model of text comprehension?

We encode ideas from texts as propositions.
Ideas from a text, once encoded, are organized hierarchically.
We use working memory to construct the text representation.
The more propositions in a text, the more easily we comprehend it.

Question 26

Pinker proposes that in order to “morph” words into different forms (i.e., past tense), we have:

one system that is associative; we encode associations between the past and present tense, and use them to retrieve one another.
one system that operates via rules; we use these rules (e.g., “add an -s to make a plural”) to morph words.
two systems; we use the rule system for exceptions, and the associative system for non-exceptions.
two systems; we use the rule system for non-exceptions, and the associative system for exceptions.

 Question 27

The design feature of language that allows us to communicate ideas that are remote in space and time is:
discreteness.
specialization.
productivity.
displacement.

Question 28

Luo, Johnson, & Gallo (1998) tested whether “pseudohomophones” (e.g., “brane”) would show effects of semantic relatedness. In other words, would the letter string “brane” prime a related concept (e.g., neuron)? 
What did they find?

That access to the mental lexicon was most probably direct.
Pseudohomophones primed only the actual word (e.g., “brain,” in this example).
Pseudohomophones did not prime related concepts.
Pseudohomophones did prime related concepts.

Question 29

The difficulty in processing garden-path sentences:
confirms that the default structure in English syntax tends to be subject-object-verb.
is evidence against the garden-path approach.
is evident in reading times, but not in eye movements.
