Verbo-motor priming in the phonetic encoding of real and non-words

S. P. Whiteside, R. A. Varley

We report an investigation of the production of real and non-words in two normal speaker groups. Group 1 consists of 6 young females (mean age 26 years) and Group 2 consists of 5 older females (mean age 54 years). The speech material used in the study consisted of two repetitions of 10 real, 10 pseudo-real and 10 non-words. The results from both repetitions for measures of response latency, utterance duration and word duration of both groups are presented and discussed with reference to observed patterns of verbo-motor priming. These patterns are discussed together with implications for phonetic encoding and the motor execution of speech.
