End of Language

The well-known Phenomenon of End of the Language ( I know that I know something although I cannot remember it, although I have in the end of the language ) is a subjective state that, in certain occasions, a person undergoes when he is sure that she knows a word certain but, at the same time, he is not able to accede to her and to emit it. One would be a selective failure in the lexical recovery from the semantic memory. One is a design of an investigation that would analyze the effect priming, in two different varieties: semantic versus perceptual (visual), in phenomenon PL. In the experiment 180 subjects would participate (men/women), of ages between 25 55 years, distributed in different groups from age. Controlled the effect cultural level and the semantic type of priming, one only appears of associative type.

The formulated hypothesis is that it will be hoped to obtain better latency of answer when in the task of induction of phenomenon PL priming appears semantic that when priming appears visual. The obtained results of the investigations of Brown and McNeill would be discussed to the results considering, and in relation to the theories of the Conexionistas Models. Key words: phenomenon end of the language effect priming lexical access Introduction According to Levelt (1989), an adult of average education owns an active vocabulary that contains about thirty thousand words, which makes comprehensible that the study of the processes of access to the lexicon is so fascinating for the investigators, when trying to discover how a so quick election of the word adapted during the fluid speech can be carried out, requiring for it a series of processes of lexical recovery practically automated.
