Steenbeek-Planting, Esther G., Wim H.J. van Bon and Robert Schreuder 2017 Instability of word reading errors of typical and poor readersWritten Language & Literacy 20:2, pp. 147–169 | Article
We examined the instability of reading errors, that is whether a child reads the same word sometimes correctly and sometimes incorrectly, and whether typical readers differ in their instability from poor readers. With an interval of a few days, Dutch CVC words were read twice by typically… read more
Vaan, Laura de, Kobie van Krieken, Winie van den Bosch, Robert Schreuder and Mirjam Ernestus 2017 The traces that novel morphologically complex words leave in memory are abstract in natureThe Mental Lexicon 12:2, pp. 181–218 | Article
Previous work has shown that novel morphologically complex words (henceforth neologisms) leave traces in memory after just one encounter. This study addressed the question whether these traces are abstract in nature or exemplars. In three experiments, neologisms were either primed by themselves… read more
Hanssen, Esther, Arina Banga, Anneke Neijt and Robert Schreuder 2015 Regional origin affects the interpretation of linking elements in spoken Dutch compoundsThe Mental Lexicon 10:2, pp. 165–185 | Article
In Dutch, the linking element en in compounds is often homophonous with the regular plural suffix -en. Both are pronounced as [ә], [әn] or [ṇ] in different regions of the Netherlands. As a consequence, speakers of standard Dutch may interpret linking en in spoken compounds as a plural marker. The… read more
Hanssen, Esther, Arjen P. Versloot, Eric Hoekstra, Arina Banga, Anneke Neijt and Robert Schreuder 2015  Morphological variation in the speech of Frisian-Dutch bilinguals: (Dis)similarity of linking suffixes and plural endingsLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 5:3, pp. 356–378 | Article
In standard Dutch, the plural suffix -en is homographic and homophonic with the linking suffix -en (boek+en “books”, boek+en+kast “bookcase”), both being pronounced as schwa. In Frisian, there is neither homography nor homophony (boek+en “books”, pronounced with syllabic nasal; boek+e+kast… read more
Hanssen, Esther, Robert Schreuder and Anneke Neijt 2015 From t-bias to d-bias in Dutch: Evidence from children’s spelling and pronunciationWritten Language & Literacy 18:1, pp. 104–120 | Article
Previous studies reveal that young Dutch children display a [t]-bias in the middle of words in pronunciation (e.g. van der Feest 2007; Kerkhoff 2007). First graders, however, display a 〈d〉-bias in the middle of words in their writings (Neijt & Schreuder 2007). The present study investigates… read more
Banga, Arina, Esther Hanssen, Anneke Neijt and Robert Schreuder 2013 Plurals as modifiers in Dutch and English noun-noun compounds express plurality in productionThe Mental Lexicon 8:1, pp. 53–74 | Article
The present study investigates the relation between conceptual plurality and the occurrence of a plural morpheme in novel Dutch and English noun-noun compounds. Using a picture-naming task, we compared the naming responses of native Dutch speakers and native English speakers to pictures depicting… read more
Banga, Arina, Esther Hanssen, Robert Schreuder and Anneke Neijt 2012 How subtle differences in orthography influence conceptual interpretationUnits of Language – Units of Writing, Joyce, Terry and David Roberts (eds.), pp. 185–208 | Article
The present study investigates linguistic relativity. The units of writing investigated are e and en, which are used to represent units of language in Dutch, Frisian, and Afrikaans. Dutch has homographic forms in the plural suffix -en and the linking element of noun-noun compounds en. Frisian does… read more
Vaan, Laura de, Mirjam Ernestus and Robert Schreuder 2011 The lifespan of lexical traces for novel morphologically complex wordsThe Mental Lexicon 6:3, pp. 374–392 | Article
This study investigates the lifespans of lexical traces for novel morphologically complex words. In two visual lexical decision experiments, a neologism was either primed by itself or by its stem. The target occurred 40 trials after the prime (Experiments 1 & 2), after a 12 hour delay (Experiment… read more
Tabak, Wieke, Robert Schreuder and Harald Baayen 2010 Producing inflected verbs: A picture naming studyThe Mental Lexicon 5:1, pp. 22–46 | Article
Four picture naming experiments addressing the production of regular and irregular pasttense forms in Dutch are reported. Effects of inflectional entropy as well as effects of the frequency of the past-tense inflected form across regulars and irregulars support models with a redundant lexicon while… read more
Jansen, Carel, Robert Schreuder and Anneke Neijt 2007 The influence of spelling conventions on perceived plurality in compounds: A comparison of Afrikaans and DutchConstraints on Spelling Changes, Nottbusch, Guido and Eliane Segers (eds.), pp. 185–194 | Article
Dutch compounds with ‘e’ or ‘en’ as linking element between modifier and head were presented to mother tongue speakers of Afrikaans in an experimental setting that explored the possibility that these different spelling formats would suggest a singular or plural meaning of the modifier. The… read more
Neijt, Anneke and Robert Schreuder 2007 Asymmetrical phoneme–grapheme mapping of coronal plosives in DutchConstraints on Spelling Changes, Nottbusch, Guido and Eliane Segers (eds.), pp. 219–234 | Article
The distinction between deep and shallow orthographies is a central issue in studies of alphabetic writing. This paper aims to contribute to the debate on the relative merits of these by investigating how the coronal plosives [d] and [t] map onto the corresponding letters d and t. It turns out that… read more
Vaan, Laura de, Robert Schreuder and Harald Baayen 2007 Regular morphologically complex neologisms leave detectable traces in the mental lexiconThe Mental Lexicon 2:1, pp. 1–23 | Article
This study investigates whether regular morphological complex neologisms leave detectable traces in the mental lexicon. Experiment 1 (subjective frequency estimation) was a validation study for our materials. It revealed that semantic ambiguity led to a greater reduction of the ratings for… read more
This study addresses the interpretation of a Dutch homonymic suffix, s, as it appears in Dutch compounds. In a series of reading experiments we manipulated the presence versus absence of this suffix in existing compounds as well as in compounds with a pseudoword as left constituent. We observed an… read more
Wurm, Lee H., Mirjam Ernestus, Robert Schreuder and Harald Baayen 2006 Dynamics of the auditory comprehension of prefixed words: Cohort entropies and Conditional Root Uniqueness PointsThe Mental Lexicon 1:1, pp. 125–146 | Article
This auditory lexical decision study shows that cohort entropies, conditional root uniqueness points, and morphological family size all contribute to the dynamics of the auditory comprehension of prefixed words. Three entropy measures calculated for different positions in the stem of Dutch… read more
Perdijk, Kors, Robert Schreuder and Ludo Verhoeven 2005 The role of morphological family size in word recognition: A developmental perspectiveLiteracy Processes and Literacy Development, Reitsma, Pieter and Ludo Verhoeven (eds.), pp. 45–59 | Article
This paper proposes an approach for studying the structure and development of the mental lexicon based on morphological family size. For adults, the number of morphologically related words has been shown to facilitate word recognition (Schreuder, & Baayen, 1997). This effect is assumed to be caused… read more
Neijt, Anneke, Robert Schreuder and Harald Baayen 2004 Seven years later: The effect of spelling on interpretationLinguistics in the Netherlands 2004, Cornips, Leonie and Jenny Doetjes (eds.), pp. 134–145 | Article
Schreuder, Robert and Ludo Verhoeven 2004 Introduction: The cross-linguistic study of readingProcess and Acquisition of Written Language, Schreuder, Robert and Ludo Verhoeven (eds.), pp. 3–7 | Article
Verhoeven, Ludo, Harald Baayen and Robert Schreuder 2004 Orthographic constraints and frequency effects in complex word identificationProcess and Acquisition of Written Language, Schreuder, Robert and Ludo Verhoeven (eds.), pp. 49–59 | Article
In an experimental study we explored the role of word frequency and orthographic constraints in the reading of Dutch bisyllabic words. Although Dutch orthography is highly regular, several deviations from a one-to-one correspondence occur. In polysyllabic words, the grapheme E may represent three… read more

Bot, Kees de en Robert Schreuder 1994 Woordproduktie bij TweetaligenTaalproduktie, pp. 9–18 | Article
An attempt is made to validate an adaptation of Levelťs (1989) Speaking model to bilingual speakers. It is concluded that the best empirical evidence available at the moment comes from research on speech errors and code switching. Data from the latter source suggests that in word retrieval,… read more
