Description

Self-paced reading latencies for Dutch neologisms ending in the suffix -heid.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 1280 observations on the following 18 variables.

Subject

a factor with subjects as levels.

Word

a factor with words as levels.

RT

a numeric vector with logarithmically transformed reading latencies.

RootFrequency

a numeric vector for the logarithmically transformed frequency of the lowest-level base of the neologism (e.g., lob in [[[lob]+ig]+heid].

Condition

a factor for the priming conditions with levels baseheid (neologism is preceded 40 trials back by its base word) and heidheid (the neologism is preceded 40 trials back by itself).

Rating

a numeric vector for the word's subjective frequency estimate.

Frequency

a numeric vector for the neologism's frequency (all zero).

BaseFrequency

a numeric vector for the base adjective underlying the neologism (e.g., lobbig in [[[lob]+ig]+heid]).

LengthInLetters

a numeric vector coding word length in letters.

FamilySize

a numeric vector for the logaritmically transformed count of a word's morphological family members.

NumberOfSynsets

a numeric vector for the count of synonym sets in WordNet in which the word is listed.

RT4WordsBack

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latencies four trials back.

RT3WordsBack

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latencies three trials back.

RT2WordsBack

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latencies two trials back.

RT1WordBack

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latencies one trial back.

RT1WordLater

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latencies one trial later.

RT2WordsLater

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latencies two trials later.

RTtoPrime

a numeric vector for the log-transformed reading latency for the prime.
