The vectors are then clustered into groups, each identifying a sense of the target word.
The target word that the user intended to write at each position is also known and stored in a file.
From this a distribution of the word scores assigned to the target words was derived.
If the target word in the position had a recognition score lower than the threshold then it was omitted.
The response time for the target word is affected by the relationship between the prime and the target.
For example, one study used other speechlike sounds to cover up the target words.
This was done by means of shape/weight related priming sentences and target words.
The relationship between the sentence context and the target word varied.
In one condition, the target word was highly predictable from the context.
Identification of the target word is more difficult with more competitors.
