We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Semantically salient words

Subject: Semantically salient words

I am doing research that looks at the effects of varying the semantic
saliency of the probe word when performing a semantic priming task.
there appears to be evidence that highly salient probe words have a
reduced semantic priming effect relative to neutrally salient probe
words. I am looking for more highly salient probe words to use as
stimuli, so is there any sort of databse or list of salient words that
exists somewhere?
