Strategic control of sentence context effects in a naming task.
The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 39A(2), 253-275.
Year of publication:
This paper reports an experiment which demonstrates strategic influences on sentence context effects observed in a naming task. The size of the sentence context effect is shown to be influenced by the validity of the contextual information. A similar pattern of results is obtained simply by changing the proportion of validity completed sentences in the practice session without altering the composition of the experimental trials themselves. In a further experiment it is shown that the facilitatory effects of sentence context observed in experiment 1 are not dependent on the particular baseline condition employed.
