Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.org>

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.

I'm wondering what evidence exists that, on a lexical task, the first word
offered by a speaker may in fact be the word that is heard and
produced with higher frequency (the thorny problem of interviewer
effects notwithstanding).

Matthei & Roeper (1985) argue that frequency of occurrence of a word
affects the time it takes to gain access in the mental lexicon.

Anything else?

Happy to compile & share responses upon request.
