A phoneme-grapheme feedback consistency effect

Recent studies examining the feedback consistency effect have been criticized for poor item selection (Peereman, Content, & Bonin, 1998). In the present study, an experiment was run with a new set of items, in which feedback consistency was manipulated at a phoneme-grapheme level. The results suggested that participants responded faster to feedback-consistent words than to feedback-inconsistent words. This was despite the feedback-consistent and feedback-inconsistent word groups’ being matched on many other dimensions, including word frequency and subjective orthographic frequency. These results may differ from those of previous studies, since previous studies in English have measured feedback consistency at the rime-body level.
