Abstract

Following a brief history of age of acquisition (AoA) research and consideration of

measures of AoA, this review examines AoA effects in lexical processing tasks (such

as object naming, word reading, and word recognition in the lexical decision task),

and in object recognition and semantic processing tasks. It also considers AoA

effects in: Memory tasks; face processing tasks; multiple-task studies; and different

groups of participants (including bilinguals, aphasics, and deep dyslexics). The

review then discusses theoretical accounts of AoA effects, especially within

connectionist models, and outlines a number of new and outstanding empirical

and theoretical issues in AoA research that are addressed by the papers in this

Special Issue.
