Monolingual and Multilingual Morphological Coding During Visual Word Recognition

Abstract : One of the most sophisticated abilities humans have acquired through evolution is the ability to communicate language through its written form. In the past decades, a lot of research has been done trying to explain how the visual system identifies complex words. The main aim of the thesis is to better understand the general mechanisms underlying the recognition of a lexical entry. It has been established that visual word codification benefits from morphological priming, research has shown faster reaction times and higher accuracy for the identification of words when preceded by a morphological relative. Also, it has been suggested that the mental structures underlying word recognition processes are shared across languages (Giraudo & Grainger, 2000). This is why morphological priming research in a multilingual context offers the perfect opportunity to explore what effects are systematic in different languages in order to better understand the core mechanisms of visual word perception.
