To test the effects of word perceptual familiarity and therefore indirectly the hypothesis of a logographic processing in adults, most paradigms created subtle but significant perceptive deformations of the stimuli in order to estimate their impact on the visual word recognition. Effects of practice for word frequency (a), word length (b), and old20 (c) as estimated by the mixed effects analysis notice that the differences on the ordinates represent effect sizes in standard deviations (equivalent to cohen’s d -measure. The effects of word length on visual word recognition have been examined with a variety of techniques (such as perceptual identification, lexical decision, naming, eye tracking), but the results have been inconsistent, ranging from inhibitory (longer words are harder) to null effects.
Word length has a strong effect on visual word recognition this study was conducted to examine the locus of the word-length effect by looking at the interacting pattern between word length and word frequency. The length, frequency, and predictability of a word are among the most influential known visuoorthographic, lexical, and contextual processing factors involved in visual word recognition ( rayner. The length effects were replicated in a new analysis of a subset of 3,833 monomorphemic nouns (ranging from 3 to 10 letters), and also in another analysis based on 12,987 bisyllabic items (ranging from 3 to 9 letters.

Research report re-evaluating split-fovea processing in word recognition: effects of word length timothy r jordan, kevin b paterson and marcin stachurski. Morphological and semantic effects in visual word recognition: a time-course study kathleen rastle department of experimental psychology, university of cambridge, uk.
Baddeley's theory accounts reasonably well for the word-length effect and the effects of articulatory suppression baddeley et al (1998) and papagno et al (1991) suggest that the phonological loop may be more important in learning new words than familiar ones. The word presentation can either be visual or auditory word-length effects short words are recalled more accurately than longer words anger, confusion, and carbohydrate craving 90 to 180 minutes after consumption memory word recognition also improved significantly physical activity. The effects of word length on visual word recognition have been examined with a variety of techniques (such as perceptual identification, lexical decision, naming, eye. During visual word recognition, string length affects performance when stimuli are presented to the left visual field (lvf), but not when they are presented to the right visual field (rvf) using a lexical-decision experiment, we investigated an account of this phenomenon based on the seriol model of letter-position encoding.
The word-length effect, with perceptual transforms visual word recognition is an expert perceptual skill acquired by literate subjects over years of reading it can be considered one of the paradigmatic examples of expertise in it is likely true that substantial word-length effects on the order of hundreds of milliseconds. Several studies have claimed that, when fixating a word, a precise split in foveal processing causes all letters to the left and right of fixation to project to different, contralateral hemispheres (split-fovea theory – sft. The finding that visual processing of a word correlates with the number of its letters has an extensive history in healthy subjects, a variety of methods, including perceptual thresholds, naming and lexical decision times, and ocular motor parameters, show modest effects that interact with high-order effects like frequency.
Many studies have examined the effects of word length in visual word recognition using a variety of techniques, but these studies have yielded inconsistent results ranging from inhibitory to null effects the word length effect of working memory describes the ability to recall a series of words better with short words than that of long words (goldstein, 2011. Documentation links to similar projects recent site activity reexamining the word length effect in visual word recognition: new evidence from the english lexicon project practice effects in large-scale visual word recognition studies: a lexical decision study on 14,000 dutch mono- and disyllabic words and nonwords. Start studying visual word recognition learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools word length, neighbouring effects and levels of concreteness all also seem to influence sped at which different words are recognised input from visual system features letters words - this is how parallel. Syllabic effects on high frequency words and non-words, but it predicts that syllabic length would influence word recognition in low frequency words 115 purpose of the study.
