Event types (ET) have been widely addressed in linguistic literature, but few studies have dealt with the questions of how they are represented, retrieved and processed in the mental lexicon. We report two experiments in which ET categories were found to give rise to semantic priming effects, both with word and picture stimuli. These effects are argued to provide empirical correlates for ET categories in the mental lexicon not only at the lexical level but also at a deeper conceptual level.

Abstract

Event types (ET) have been widely addressed in linguistic literature, but few studies have dealt with the questions of how they are represented, retrieved and processed in the mental lexicon. We report two experiments in which ET categories were found to give rise to semantic priming effects, both with word and picture stimuli. These effects are argued to provide empirical correlates for ET categories in the mental lexicon not only at the lexical level but also at a deeper conceptual level.
