This "\;inner speech"\; (also called "\;perceptual simulation"\;) is characteristic of skilled reading. Furthermore\, inner speech appears to be derived from the phonological code or representations generated during the grapheme-to-phoneme conversion process during reading. There is a growing body of evidence \;that rough phonological representations are included in inner speech during silent reading\, as well as evidence \;that readers create an implicit metrical structure during silent reading. \;Recent research demonstrates that higher-level features are also generated under certain circumstances. For example\, direct quotations described as being said quickly are read faster than those described as being said slowly (Stites\, Luke\, &\; Christianson\, 2013\; Yao &\; Scheepers\, 2011). In this talk\, I will describe this perceptual simulation effect\, extend it to a wider variety of texts and "\;speaker"\; characteristics\, and consider the connection between perceptual simulation and reading comprehension. \;\n\n\n\n SUMMARY:Psychology Faculty Research Colloquia PRIORITY:3 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
