Relation priming, the lexical boost, and alignment in dialogue

  • Claudine N. Raffray (a1), Martin J. Pickering (a1) and Holly P. Branigan (a1)
Abstract
Abstract

The authors' claim that analogical reasoning is the product of relational priming is compatible with language processing work that emphasizes the role of low-level automatic processes in the alignment of situation models in dialogue. However, their model ignores recent behavioral evidence demonstrating a “lexical boost” effect on relational priming. We discuss implications of these data.
