Abstract:
Recent psycholinguistic research has witnessed an increasing interest in variability in language processing, with a growing consensus that language processing mechanisms are intrinsically variable, as a reflection of a flexible system. In my talk, I will present fidings from two morphological processing studies focusing on two types of variability – variabily across individuals and variability across trials. I will show that, by taking variability as direct object of investigation, we can additionally detect effects that would not be observable at group-level, which would lead to at least partially wrong conclusions. I will therefore conclude that going beyond average effects can crucially inform current language processing theories and provide better descriptions of the cognitive mechanisms we wish to understand.
