This argument has been supported. In a primed character decision task Tan and Peng (1991) presented a two-character word as a prime, followed by a legal single character target or an illegal pseudo-character at a 150-ms SOA. The key manipUlation was that either the first or the second character of two-character word primes was a homograph having two different pronunciations. In this condition, the other character of the two-character word amounted to a context, forcing the correct pronunciation of the homograph.

Single-character words Targets were presented at At threshold +14 ms, homophones facilitated threshold or at threshold recognition. The effects of meaning-related +14 ms; masks for 42 ms masks depended on the meaning dimensions under investigation. Backward masking Tan, Hoosain and Siok (1996) For 'no' type responses, interference occurred at all SOAs when two characters had the same pronunciation but different meanings.
