Such knowledge will guide future investigations and, hence, impact also models of language performance. The authors deal with a specific functional step visual word identification of the more complex human ability of single word reading and it is not necessary that the relevant variables for identification can be extrapolated to other functional steps e. As the authors mentioned themselves, their list of effects is not exhaustive.
However, one would like to know whether, and if so, what role further variables such as surface frequency, word length, word class, abstractness, or cues to morpheme boundaries are supposed to play in word identification e. Consequently, one needs to discuss whether the additional variables mentioned here affect only later reading stages or what their role could be during word identification. More generally, the authors seem to aim for a psycholinguistic, i.
This is not the same; morphological effects can, for example, be simulated without an implementation of morphology; cf. Baayen et al. They also refer to some eye-tracking and electrophysiological studies which provide neural evidence. It remains unclear how the neural evidence is to be incorporated into a strictly cognitive model. Alternatively, one may aim for a neuro-cognitive model of language behavior and visual word identification in particular.
If one is to construct a complete model of such a phenomenon, the effects behavior but also the causes neural activity appear to be relevant and should be considered. Another methodological issue arises from the suggestion that models of visual word identification should explain the effects listed by Amenta and Crepaldi because the list comprises aspects of experimental techniques masking. Masking does not pertain to the phenomenon in question but experimental paradigms can be modeled. For example, Norris and Kinoshita proposed that in masked priming, prime, and target are perceptually fused into a single percept or object.
As a consequence, masked priming effects may depend on the task requirements rather than on the relation between prime and target representations. Norris and Kinoshita show that priming effects can be shifted from word stimuli to non-word stimuli by using a same-different task rather than a lexical decision task. For the present discussion, one can doubt whether psycholinguistic models of word identification have to combine methodological aspects such as masked priming with the processes of interest, i.
Next steps of enquiry may focus on the different domains of morphology, inflection, derivation, or compounding drawing on as many sources of evidence as possible e. Niemi et al. Another major challenge is the theoretical unification of different sensory modalities. Finally, future reviews would be highly informative, if they use quantitative evaluations of research findings. One might perform meta-analyses or quantify the frequency of replications of particular effects. This way, our understanding of the connection between morphology and how it is represented and controlled by the human brain may be fostered cf.
