A large-scale study of the effects of word frequency and predictability in naturalistic reading

NAACL 2019 Cory Shain

A number of psycholinguistic studies have factorially manipulated words{'} contextual predictabilities and corpus frequencies and shown separable effects of each on measures of human sentence processing, a pattern which has been used to support distinct mechanisms underlying prediction on the one hand and lexical retrieval on the other. This paper examines the generalizability of this finding to more realistic conditions of sentence processing by studying effects of frequency and predictability in three large-scale naturalistic reading corpora...
