Does typing-related motor experience influence the retrieval of orthographic information? Effect of letter configuration in an anagram solution task.

Résumé

Embodied theories of language postulate that reading a word reactivates a set of sensory and motor experiences previously associated with the word’s concept (Berndt et al., 2018). An experience associated to written linguistic material is writing. Nowadays, keyboard replaces pen, and typing is massively used to produce linguistic material on different devices. Recent work indicates that the time spent typing on a keyboard influence word recognition process (Cerni et al., 2016). In our study, we tested the hypothesis that the knowledge of the keyboard configuration associated to typing, facilitates the retrieval of the order of the sequence of letters composing a word. We ran an online experiment with 100 adults. Two tasks were designed: anagram resolution (main task) and intruder identification (control task). Two visual presentation conditions were possible: either congruent or incongruent with the way the word is written on the keyboard. Preliminary results indicate that anagrams were solved faster in the congruent than in the incongruent configuration, while the configuration had no effect in the intruder identification task. If confirmed, these results suggest that keyboard practice plays a role in retrieval of word information.
