AbstractThe study investigated the locus of orthographic facilitation using a Cantonese picture-word naming paradigm, a task in which participants were required to name a target picture while ignoring the written word distractor presented along. Seven distractor conditions of different picture-word relations were constructed. Fourty-eight local undergraduates were randomly assigned to 3 different stimulus-onset asynchrony (SOA) groups and took part in the picture naming tasks. It was found that orthographic facilitation occurred at -100ms, 0ms and 100ms; phonological facilitation occurred at 0ms and 100ms; while semantic interference occurred at 0ms. More importantly, interactive effect was observed between orthographic facilitation and semantic inhibition at -100ms and 0ms, which provided support to the hypothesis that orthographic facilitation has its locus lying in the semantic route of the functional model of reading and writing in Chinese. The results also favoured the lemma retrieval account over the name retrieval account.
