Abstract:
Articulatory factors are typically relegated to a peripheral role in theoretical accounts of cognitive function. For example, verbal short-term memory functions are thought to be serviced by dedicated mechanisms that operate on abstract phonological (i.e., non-articulatory) items. An alternative tested here is that memory functions are supported by motor control processes that embody articulatory detail. To provide evidence for this viewpoint, this thesis focuses on the influence of articulatory effort-minimisation processes on memory and speech.
