Abstract

To date, syntactic priming in sentence production has been investigated categorically, in terms of the probabilities of re-using particular syntactic structures. In this paper, we report a web-based replication of Pickering and Branigan (1998), Experiment 1, using a typed sentence completion paradigm which made it possible to record not only the responses made, but also the response onset latency for each sentence completion. In conditions where priming occurred (as determined categorically), responses took less time where target completions were of the same type as preceding prime completions than where they differed. As well as validating internet-based research by direct comparison with laboratory-based work, our fndings strengthen the support for an architectural account of syntactic priming as envisaged by Pickering and Branigan (1998).
