Golden Gate Exhibit Hall
We investigated the role of bigrams formed by non-adjacent letters in letter identification. Participants performed a forced-choice letter identification task where bigram frequency for both adjacent and non-adjacent letters was manipulated. The effect of bigram frequency for non-adjacent letters on letter identification varied based on the adjacent-letter bigram frequency.
