Abstract or Introduction

The present thesis investigates the past tense debate in the face of different cues. For this purpose, a lexical decision task has been designed upon a masked priming paradigm. The current research centers around the question of how simple past primes facilitate the visual recognition of a regular past tense target. The study will investigate how morphological related and form related primes influence the response times in a masked prime lexical decision task. The general purpose of this study is to create another account in the debate by using different parameters that have not been considered in previous research to a great extent. This will be achieved by using different prime-target pairs that correspond to several factors that affect visual word recognition of past tense forms.
