Query:   Greetings,

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.
