Effects of Task on the Processing of Swedish Word Accents: A Reaction Time and Response Time Study

Söderström, Pelle LU ; Roll, Mikael LU and Horne, Merle LU (2013) Nordic Prosody, 2012 In Nordic Prosody: proceedings of the XIth conference p.353-362
Abstract
This study investigated the effect of experimental task on the processing of Central Swedish word accents. Both reaction times and response times were included as behavioural measures in a word accent/suffix (mis-)match paradigm. Results support the hypothesis that Accent 2 is associated with a heavier lexical functional load as compared to Accent 1. This effect was found to be relatively task-independent.
