Experiment Author: Adapted from STEP (student submission to Research Methods class) and used with permission of Brian MacWhinney
Investigates whether participants are more likely to identify a word as rhyming with another word if the words resemble each other visually.
In this experiment, every trial presents a pair of words sequentially. Press "1" on the keyboard if the words rhyme, and "2" on the keyboard if they do not. Some word pairs rhyme but do not resemble each other visually. Some word pairs do not rhyme despite resembling each other visually. There are 4 practice trials and 32 critical trials in this experiment.
