The interaction in the analysis by materials was not significant. Second, the potential effect of type of competitors (word -initial or word -final ) was confounded with the potential effect of prefixing: the majority of the word -final competitors (like prevent) had prefixlike first syllables, whereas all of the word -initial competitors (like private) were monomorphemic. Third , becauseof the scarcity of suitablematerials it was not possible to match the words as closely as desired for their inherent intelligibility or to control the words for their lexical neighborhoods (the Richard Shillcock number of words different by only one segment).
