The Auditory English Lexicon Project
12 October 2021 (Tuesday), 4pm
The Auditory English Lexicon Project (AELP) is a multi-talker, multi-region psycholinguistic database of over 10,000 spoken words and accompanying nonwords. This resource is freely available from a website (https://inetapps.nus.edu.sg/aelp/) hosted by NUS Psychology. In the first part of the talk, I discuss the considerations that went into the database creation, and demonstrate some functionalities of the website. In the second part of the talk, I present some preliminary analyses of the AELP data on the effects of over 15 structural and lexico-semantic properties on two psycholinguistic tasks – auditory lexical decision and spoken word identification.
Winston Goh obtained his PhD in 2001 in Cognitive Psychology and Cognitive Science from Indiana University at Bloomington. He is currently Associate Professor at NUS Psychology with research interests in memory and spoken word recognition.
