Description

Language processing can direct the time course of eye fixations based on both words being processed and the context. One contextual factor that may influence eye movement patterns is common ground, which refers to the information that speakers assume they have in common with listeners. This study uses pupillometry and eye movements elicited during a word generation task under different common ground conditions and for people with different fluency abilities. We predict that high fluency speakers will show effects of common ground, but that low fluency speakers will not.
