AbstractThe present study aimed to investigate the effect of age of acquisition and semantic transparency on character recognition in traditional characters. Forty-six university students studying in Hong Kong participated in the study. A lexical decision task was employed and the participants were required to judge whether the presented character was a real character or not. The result showed that age of acquisition significantly predicts the response time and response accuracy, with early acquired characters were responded more quickly and accurately than late acquired characters. However, the effect of semantic transparency was insignificant. In conclusion, age of acquisition effect appears in the early stage of character recognition while the effect of semantic transparency is not.
