Abstract

The implications of priming experiments for a structural theory of the mental lexicon depend critically on the development of an adequate theory of the mechanics of priming. Masked priming techniques may simplify this task, since consciously perceived relationships play no role in masked priming. the implications of adopting an activation-based approach to morphological priming is discussed, and an alternative model is described.
