  • Jinxing Yue
To recognise a spoken word, one has to access the phonological knowledge of this word mentally represented at a lexical (whole-word) level and the knowledge of consonants and vowels encoded at a sublexical level. For Mandarin Chinese, the meaning of a word is decided by not only the combination of consonants and vowels but also lexical tones. In this book, Jinxing Yue investigates the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying word recognition in native Mandarin speakers, with a particular focus on the role of lexical-level representations.
