Effects of Task on the Processing of Swedish Word Accents: A Reaction Time and Response Time Study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

This study investigated the effect of experimental task on the processing of Central Swedish word accents. Both reaction times and response times were included as behavioural measures in a word accent/suffix (mis-)match paradigm. Results support the hypothesis that Accent 2 is associated with a heavier lexical functional load as compared to Accent 1. This effect was found to be relatively task-independent.
