Abstract:

The position uncertainty explanation for the perceptual superiority of words was tested using a lateral masking procedure. Position uncertainty was varied by comparing response modes which differed in opportunity for sequence inversions. The data suggest a direct perceptual facilitation of words that is not mediated through position uncertainty.
