Abstract

In 2 experiments, the authors explored age of acquisition (AoA) and word frequency (WF) effects in

a picture and then, a short time later, categorized 1 of 3 possible auditory tones as high, medium, or low.

reaction times (RTs), with the effects of AoA being stronger. In Experiment 2, the to-be-named picture

The relationship between the interval and AoA (Experiment 2A) was reliably underadditive; AoA effects

of the interval. These results demonstrate an empirical dissociation between AoA and WF effects. AoA

picture naming are discussed.
