New pre-print from Lena Blott: Individual differences in sentence comprehension

Blott, L.M., Rodd, J.M., Ferreira, F., Warren J. (2019). Semantic ambiguity resolution during sentence comprehension is more efficient in individuals with greater lexical expertise.

This pre-print reports an eye-tracking study (N=96) That Lena conducted while visiting Fernanda Ferreira’s lab in UCSD.

The results highlight the importance of reading experience and vocabulary knowledge for the efficiency of on-line reading processes in adult readers.
