A folder containing useful tools for this lab is available from the non-public resources page on the course web-site. The advantages of this software are that it is relatively easy to use and it is well-suited for use in lexical decision studies. You will only need to read a small portion of the manual.

Also, for the current lab you can create the two lexical decision studies by modifying scripts that were already created for you for the speech perception experiments in Lab 1. Simple lexical djdx task Aim: Download this file, and then run the installer.

Sets and checks software and hardware features for running dmdx.

If your sample script incorporates images, videos, or audios, it would be very helpful to share the script along with the other files using a zipped file, and I can upload it to the site. The sections on recording subject info and presenting instructions etc.


Notes Here are some additional notes that may be useful in tuorial on the lab. The role of phonological encoding in L2 reading Language: The setion on running trials may be quite useful to you at an early stage.
