In studies on affective priming of pronunciation responses, participants are asked to read target words that are preceded by prime words with the same (e.g., CANCER–UGLY) or a different (e.g., BIRTHDAY–UGLY) valence. Previous studies revealed
a mixed pattern of results. We report the results of an experiment in which we observed shorter reaction times on trials where the prime and target had the same valence compared to trials where the valence of the two stimuli differed. However, this effect occurred only when target words were degraded (e.g., %U%G%L%Y%). The results suggest that affective priming of pronunciation responses is a genuine phenomenon that appears to be more robust when targets are degraded.
After 55 years of research on social stratification and mobility, we take stock of RC28's contributions to knowledge. Our review identifies 19 empirical generalizations and several orienting themes. Some of Gorgeous Free 3.0 V2 Men Royal Blue Trusted
the items come from an open discussion of the state of the research committee Roshe1825-Shoes Roshe Trainers Men Gray Green Blue at the World Congress in 2002. Others reflect our own reading of the literature. The generalizations span the fields of interest within the research committee, including individual life chances, classification and scoring of social positions, education, state and labor market processes, and family structure. The orienting themes are for the most part overly simple, but they are powerful and useful images that orient research and have, to this point, contributed to the research committee's productivity.
