Resumen

HORNO-CHELIZ, MARÍA DEL CARMEN; TIMOR, RAQUEL  y  SARASA, ANTONIO. WHAT HAPPENS IF TWO SYNONYMS ARE COMPARED? A PSYCHOLINGUISTIC STUDY ON THE NATURE OF SYNONYMY. RLA [online]. 2017, vol.55, n.1, pp.149-168. ISSN 0718-4883.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48832017000100149.

The aim of this research is the analysis of synonymy through an experimental design. Three questions have been considered: 1) is the synonymy relationship gradual or discrete? 2) is the conscious perception of the synonymy realistic? And 3) how does the brain processes this relationship? Following a previous work by Recarte Goldaracena and Peraita Adrados (1988), a lexical decision task (where participant should decide whether two items were synonyms) has been prepared. Following this task, participants were asked to mark, in a ten-Likert scale how synonyms the same partners of words were. As the result of this research, synonymy seems to be a gradual, mirrored, holistic and real relationship, which works both in the conscious and unconscious processing of language information.

Palabras clave : Synonym; processing; lexical semantics; lexical relationships; psycholinguistics.
