Event details

We have collected a new database of lexical decision times for English words and non-words, in which two groups of British participants each responded to 14,365 monosyllabic and disyllabic words and the same number of non-words for a total duration of 16 hours (divided over multiple sessions).

This database, called the British Lexicon Project (BLP), fills an important gap between existing databases. In this talk I will show how researchers and students can use this database to know more about visual word recognition, and how they can save themselves a lot of time. I will also present an overview of the most important variables influencing lexical decision times.
