Abstract, concrete and emotional words in the mental lexicon
My thesis project investigates relations in the mental lexicon. There are differences in the brain’s processing of concrete words, e.g. ’orange’ and abstract words, e.g. ’idea’. A possible reason is concrete words’ relationship to sensorimotor information. The interaction of sensorimotor, emotional and linguistic information in word processing is explored in psycho- and neurolinguistic studies.
