The strength of stress-related lexical competition depends on the presence of first-syllable stress

Eva Reinisch, Alexandra Jesse, James M. McQueen

Dutch listeners' looks to printed words were tracked while they listened to instructions to click on one of them. When presented with targets from word pairs where the first two syllables were segmentally identical but differed in stress location, listeners used stress information to recognize the target before segmental information disambiguated the words. Furthermore, the amount of lexical competition was influenced by the presence or absence of word-initial stress.
