AbstractThe authors investigated the recognizability of recently studied word and nonword stimuli in relation to both experimentally controlled prior frequency of occurrence and, for words, normative frequency (assessed by counts of occurrences in printed English). The interaction between these variables was small and nonsignificant across all conditions of 2 experiments. Patterns of recognition measures in relation to controlled prior frequency, but not normative frequency, appeared interpretable in terms of response biases generated by long-term priming. Application of a global memory model and analyses of correlations among item categories yielded evidence for a lexicality dimension underlying normative-frequency effects and an implication that "word-frequency effects" on recognition are better termed lexicality effects.
