About this book

This book shows that over forty years of psychological laboratory-based research support the claims of the Lexical Priming Theory. It examines how Lexical Priming applies to the use of spoken English as the book provides evidence that Lexical Priming is found in everyday spoken conversations.

About the authors

Michael Pace-Sigge is Senior Lecturer in the School of Humanities at the University of Eastern Finland. He was previously a Lecturer at the University of Liverpool, UK. Michael's research interests include Corpus Linguistics, Lexical Priming, the Merseyside/Liverpool English (Scouse) accent, Phonetics, Sociolinguistics and Spoken English use.


Reviews

“This book provides important evidence in support of the theory of lexical priming, as well as its validity for spoken language. … the book offers useful empirical tools for work at the meeting point for corpus-based and psycholinguistic research.” (Peter Thwaites, BAAL, Vol. 107-108, January, 2016)

'This book is clearly structured and well placed to achieve its goal of testing the appli- cation of lexical priming theory in spoken English usage, and it offers interesting and detailed insights for the topics of collocation, pattern and semantic association. It makes contributions to discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, psycholinguistics and corpus linguistics, and can be recommended to faculty and students who are interested in lexical features in a collocational environment.' - Discourse Studies
