Explorando el núcleo del significado de los conceptos. Incidencia de las variables psicolingüísticas en una tarea de reconocimiento

Tomas Torres Barbero, Gastón Deniau De Langhe, Matías Yerro Avincetto, Jorge Vivas

Resumen


Aún no existe precisión acerca de cuál es la relación entre las variables psicolingüísticas y el núcleo del significado conceptual. Este trabajo explora la relación de la Edad de Adquisición, la Imaginabilidad, la Riqueza semántica, la Familiaridad y la Concretud en la constitución del núcleo del significado. Se utiliza una tarea de reconocimiento con claves, construida con 120 conceptos y sus primeros 5 atributos extraídos de las Normas de Atributos Semánticos en Español. Participaron 300 estudiantes que debieron recuperar, en una combinatoria de 5 tomados de a 3, la etiqueta verbal del concepto al que tales atributos definen. Los mejores predictores fueron la EdA y la imaginabilidad. Estos resultados son consistentes con los estudios que sugieren la EdA como la variable que mejor explica el desempeño en tareas de Decisión Léxica.


Palabras clave
