The management of linguistic units

The overarching goal of language-production studies is to identify and describe the various levels of processing involved in this activity – in short, to specify the nature of the representations being processed.  It is also important to specify the functional activation dynamics of these levels of processing (Roux & Bonin, 2009).  We have carried out response-time experiments involving oral and written naming of images or dictation-based experiments with adults in which we measure graphic and/or articulartory onsets, as well as error rates (Delattre, Bonin, & Barry, 2006 ; Bonin, Chalard, Méot, & Barry, 2006).
