  • Bock And Levelt's Model Of Speech Language Processing

    In this study, the speakers were asked to read aloud single words and then describe pictures. Words were primes that were semantically or phonologically related to one of the to-be-produced words. For example, presented target picture could be described either way: as ‘the church is being struck by the lightning’ or as ‘lightening is striking the church’. Target words were lightning and church, semantically related prime words were thunder and worship, and phonologically related prime words were frightening and search. The results showed that lexical priming influences the syntax of sentences. Semantic priming affected sentence formulation processes - target words related to the primes occurred earlier in the picture descriptions as a subject and unrelated target words occurred later as an object in the sentence. Phonological priming showed no significant effect on the order of constituents. Therefore, the results are consistent with the Bock and Levelt’s hypothesis and their model, claiming that syntactic structure is determined at a level where the meaning of words is available, but the phonological form is not yet…
