  1. Mean number of letters, mean frequency, mean imageablity and mean lexical decision response time for the prime and target items in each condition. t-tests between each condition for each feature reveal no significant differences (p > .1). Abbreviations LD RT Single word lexical decision response time in milliseconds; a = Sourced from Kucera & Francis, 1967 [51]; b = Sourced from Gilhooly & Logie, 1980, Pavio, Yuille & Madigan, 1968, and Toglia & Battig, 1978 [5254]; c = Sourced from The English Lexicon Project website [55]
