Investigates the nature of sublexical processing in reading Chinese characters in three primed naming experiments. Target characters semantically related to the phonetic radicals embedded in complex characters; Effect of semantic primes in increasing the naming latencies to the targets; Sublexical processing in reading Chinese as a phonological and semantic event.
