Shota, Julia, Colin and Bob Slevc in Cognition

Now in Cognition, "Syntactic category constrains lexical competition in speaking" by alum Shota Momma with former RA Julia Buffinton and faculty mentors Colin Phillips and Bob Slevc from Psychology. The paper reports two experiments using "a novel sentence-picture interference paradigm" and uses them to argue "that lexical competition in production is limited by syntactic category," so that for example the noun pronounced running will not interfere with the verb pronounced walking.
