Title: Not Everybody Sees the Ness in the Darkness: Individual Differences in Masked Suffix Priming
Highlights: We explored the role of individual differences in polymorphemic word recognition. The data from a large-scale masked suffix priming experiment were analyzed taking into consideration participants’ reading speed as a proxy for their greater reliance on orthography or on semantics. Only slow participants showed significant priming effects, whereas faster participants showed negligible masked suffix priming effects. These results demonstrate that different reading profiles modulate the access to morphological information in a qualitatively different manner.
