Abstract

In Dutch noun phrases like ''het boek'' (the book) or ''de kat'' (thecat), the definite article (het or de) depends on the noun's grammatical gender (neuter or non-neuter). Schriefers reported that the production of a noun phrase like ''het rode bes'' (''the red bed'') in response to a colored picture takes less time when the picture is accompanied by a distracter word of congruent gender (e.g., ''huis,'' a het-word) than when it is accompanied by a word of incongruent gender (e.g., ''hand,'' a de-word). In three experiments we explored the characteristics of this gender-congruency effect. The following conclusions were reached. First, the gender-congruency effect is a rather robust phenomenon. Second, with the exception of a small effect in Exp. 2, no evidence was obtained for a gender-congruency effect when subjects were required to produce a single noun in response to a picture (e.g., ''bed''). Third, the gender-congruency effect decreases with a decreasing familiarity of the distracter word. Implications for models of word production are discussed.
