Description of variable:
ename Dominant Response Only the valid responses (see below) were used for determining the target name, and for further analyses. Once the set of valid responses had been determined, the target name was defined as the "dominant response", i.e., the name that was used by the largest number of subjects. In the case of ties (two responses uttered by exactly the same number of subjects) three criteria were used to choose one of the two or more tied responses as the target. (1) the response closest to the intended target (i.e., the hypothesized target name used to select stimuli prior to the experiment), (2) the singular form if singular and plural forms were tied, and (3) the form that had the largest number of phonological variants in common.
