Psycholinguistic research generally adopts a scientific strategy that assumes a relatively
stable set of representations and processes. In accordance with this strategy, researchers
average measurements across trials, in an attempt to get a statistically stable estimate
of performance for a given experimental condition. In this paper, we present four sets
of example data drawn from various psycholinguistic tasks and show that the psycholinguistic
system appears to adapt across the trials of the experiments. We show that
there are cases in which a factor has no main effect, but interacts across trial; in other
cases there is a main effect of a factor, but that factor also interacts with trial. Finally,
we show that there are some cases in which the way that a factor interacts across trials
is dependent on other, unrelated conditions included in the experiment. Our discussion
focuses on both theoretical and methodological implications of the adaptiveness of the
psycholinguistic system.
