AbstractThe study aimed to investigate the relationship between the position information of radical and the radical’s relative frequency of distribution in a Chinese character. A primed lexical decision task was adopted, in which complex characters with radicals in dominant and sub-ordinate positions were chosen as both primes and targets. Event related potentials (ERP) was also employed in addition to behavioral data collection so as to reveal more on the underlying cognitive process involved when recognizing Chinese characters. A main effect of radical position in target (2 levels: dominant, subordinate) was found. The result supports that the radical representational units are position specific. Moreover, these units are sensitive to the radical’s relative frequency of distribution
