Write a reaction paper in response to the following article:
Nygaard, L.C. & Lunders, E.R. (2002). Resolution of lexical ambiguity by emotional tone of voice. Memory & Cognition, 30, 583-593. ( I have attached the PDF file of the article to this post) PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PAPER. ALL QUESTION’S ANSWERS MUST BE MET. THANK YOU
You must include a brief summary of the article (problem that is being studied, hypotheses, methods, main results and conclusions) (1 page or less), and your critical reaction (at least 2 full pages). In your critical reaction you should speak about strengths and weaknesses of the study. Regarding the weaknesses you can critique the methodology used to examine the problem (e.g., was the sample size enough? were the relevant variables controlled? were the instruments used appropriate to measure the variables of interest? etc); you can critique the research findings and the conclusions (are the researcher’s arguments compelling? why or why not?, are there alternative explanations for the research findings?; and/or you can reflect on the implications of the study (societal and/ or theoretical implications).
Your paper should be a word document, double spaced throughout with 1″ margins on all sides. Use 12 pt Times New Roman Font. Besides including 1 page for the summary, and 2 full pages of text for your critical reaction. You must also include a title page with your name and the title of the paper, and a references page.
You should communicate your ideas in an accurate, concise, and grammatically correct manner (be sure you proofread your paper before turning it in). Your ideas should flow smoothly and logically. Make sure that you include the main points of the study in the summary, and that your critique is thoughtful and demonstrates your understanding of the main ideas and concepts. Your paper should conform to APA style in both content and form.
Remember that the paper that you turn in must be your own. That is, you must use your own words to write the whole paper (including the summary part of the paper). Whenever you include in your reaction paper the ideas of authors other than you, you must paraphrase instead of “copying and pasting” or instead of quoting (i.e., you must not include quotations in your reaction paper). And do not forget to include the corresponding citations. Omitting citations constitute plagiarism. Inserting chunks of text from the research paper or other sources into your paper also constitute plagiarism. Evidence of plagiarism will result in a grade of zero (see additional penalties for plagiarism in the Academic Honesty section in the syllabus).
The reaction paper is worth 125 points. See Rubric Reaction Paper Psychology of Language Spring 2016 rev.doc
Remember that the summary must be 1 page or less, and that the critical reaction must be at least 2 full pages, and that no quotations are to be included in your paper. Also, you must also include a title page with your name and the title of the paper, and a references page. If your paper does not meet either of these requirements, 5 points will be deducted from the grade you get after applying the rubric.
Also remember that plagiarism in this assignment will result in a grade of zero.
