Reaction Time of Semantic Unrelated Task of Arabic Language Lexical Units: A Cognitive Study

Rasheed Ali Mohammed Saleh Athaifani

Abstract: Cognitive linguistics is the process of thinking. After the decoding of lexical units, memory has been responding swiftly for any stimulus in a short duration of time. The goal of the study was to investigate the relative time course of semantic unrelated of the lexical units from Arabic language into English language. The lexical units elicited by syntactically using anomalous words for 30 native subjects. Reaction Time (RT) was recorded by DMDX software while the subjects implemented the visual stimuli task in an alley environment. Reaction Time (RT) results from 400 to 2500 msec. were taken into consideration as they were the strongest results and valuable ones. Data has been subjected to statistical methods to gain accurate analysis. Based on one sample test, results have been shown that the standard measurement was of 850 msec. in the process of semantic unrelated of lexical units from Arabic language, the prime one, into English language, the target one.
