Analyzing Reading time data LabSyntax, 03/01/06 T. Florian Jaeger

[2] Self-paced RT studies A measure of processing complexity Say we have a hypothesis that some supposedly ungrammatical wh-orders are actually just hard to process (cf. superiority violations). As part of this hypothesis we predict that accessibility of the wh-fillers and accessibility of interveners result in more processing at the integration site (the verb)

[4] Follow along You can follow along this tutorial presentation in R by downloading the dataset and the R script from: http://www.stanford.edu/~tiflo/?teaching/LabSyntax2006/materials/ The.cnd file is used to extract the results from linger and to define the regions of interest The.rtm file contains all the reading time data (including the practice items (see Lingeralyzer documentation)Lingeralyzer documentation The.r file contains the employed R script. I haven’t documented things carefully, but with some R experience you should be able to figure things out.

[8] Import into R data <- read.table("C:/Documents and Settings/tiflo/Desktop/CLASS/RT-example/data- accessibility.rtm") colnames(data) <- c("expt","extraction","attachment","item","subj","orde r","position","word","region","rt","rtz","resrt","resrtz"," qa") Let’s do some data exploration and cleaning

[9] Testing the assumptions of ANOVA Homogeneity of variances: The variances of all conditions (and the variance of the error) are assumed to be identical. Violations of this assumption are tolerable as long as the variances are correlated (cf. Howell, 1995:340-1) Normality: The dependent variable is assumed to be normally distributed within each condition. ANOVA is relative robust against violations of normality Independence of observations: This assumption forces us to include subject and items as factors repeated measures ANOVA; mixed effect models

10
Normality

11
[11] Outlier exclusion

12
[12] Transformations Reading times should be log- transformed (works also for magnitude estimation judgment)

13
[13] Normality check Within each condition, the dependent variable (logRT) is approximately normally distributed

14
Independence

15
[15] A simple regression data.verb <- subset(data.oe.clean, region== "3" & expt == "prin2n3") lm <- lm(logRT ~ filler*intervener, data= data.verb) summary(lm) Output: Estimate Std.

[18] Clusters in your data The assumption of independence is violated if clusters in your data are correlated Several trials by the same subject Several trials of the same item Do subjects really differ?

19
[19] Some example subjects lms1 <- lm(logRT ~ filler*intervener, data= data.verb, subset= subj== "1") lms2 <- lm(logRT ~ filler*intervener, data= data.verb, subset= subj== "2") lms3 <- lm(logRT ~ filler*intervener, data= data.verb, subset= subj== "3") coefficients(lms1) coefficients(lms2) coefficients(lms3)

21
[21] Plotting data for all subjects (from Fox, 2002) trellis.device(color=F) xyplot(logRT ~ filler | subj, data=data.verb, main="Verb logRTs", ylim=c(5,7), panel=function(x, y){ panel.xyplot(x, y) #panel.loess(x, y, span=1) panel.lmline(x, y, lty=2) } )

[23] A more convenient way lmList (in package lme4) lmList(formula = logRT ~ filler * intervener | subj, data = data.verb) Coefficients: (Intercept) fillerBARE intBARE fillerBARE:intBARE 1 5.693166 0.262798559 0.098320919 -0.124386276 2 5.768000 -0.070261811 -0.036664515 0.210042552 3 6.232183 0.151478990 0.016642943 -0.037481241 4 5.835349 0.178951680 0.080414896 -0.318668839 5 5.717801 -0.006879702 0.035657065 0.264302142 6 5.569169 0.017304250 0.192764048 -0.048537682 7 5.299747 0.054687350 0.021888357 -0.184764732 8 5.667252 -0.013897366 -0.031297567 0.106345849 9 …

24
[24] Conclusion That’s why we do repeated measures or mixed effect analyses (to capture the differences between subjects as well as the commonalities of all trials by the same participant)
