We can ask how the listener deals with this ambiguity. Which lexical hypotheses are activated during the processing of such sequences, and how does the listener converge upon the correct one(s)? This kind oflexical ambiguity is extremely common in many languages. This should not come as a great surprise, since the basic building blocks of words-phonemes and syllables-are themselves often words. With the advent ofcomputerized dictionaries it has become possible to give a precise characterization of the amount of overlap and embedding found in the lexicon.

A determining role for the most frequent word -initial competitor, with no effect of overall cohort size, is accommodated by a winner-take-all architecture like TRACE .
