Description

We report three structural priming experiments that examine the lexical representations of particle verbs and their root verbs. We therefore tested whether priming is boosted by lexical overlap between prime and target verb. In Experiment 1, we had six prime sentences (with two structures (DO vs. PO) and three prime verbs (Root verb vs. Particle verb vs. Different verb) and one target picture with the root verbs as target verbs. Therefore, in data 'E1.txt', there are three colums called "condition(6 levels)", "syn(DO/PO), "verb(root,part,diff)". In Experiment 2, we had eight prime sentences (with two structures (DO vs. PO) and three prime verbs (Root verb vs. Particle verb vs. Different verb vs. Different-Particle verb) and one target picture with the particle verbs as target verbs. Therefore, in data 'E2.txt', there are three colums called "condition(8 levels)", "syn(DO/PO), "verb(root,part,diff,diffpart)". In Experiment 3, we had six prime sentences (with two structures (DO vs. PO) and three prime verbs (Different Root verb vs. Particle verb vs. Different verb) and one target picture with the particle verbs as target verbs. Therefore, in data 'E3.txt', there are three colums called "condition(6 levels)", "syn(DO/PO), "verb(diffroot,part,diff)". We also included the code scripts for three experiments and experimental materials in this data set.
