“Experimental approach to language production of Mandarin”

 

Most psycholinguistic models of speech production agree on an earlier semantic processing stage and a later word-form encoding stage. These models are mainly based on evidence from West Germanic languages, where orthographic and phonological forms are less differentiated. However, languages using logographic scripts (e.g. Mandarin) show a highly arbitrary grapheme-to-phoneme correspondence. This phenomenon raises the issue to what extent current psycholinguistic models are capable of accounting for cross-linguistic differences. In this talk, I will discuss the time course of Mandarin production and the generalizability of current language production models.
