This study examines the extent to which word recognition is influenced by the information of grammatical gender given by the French singular definite article (le/la). More specifically, the focus is on auditory word recognition when words are in the final noun phrase in a Subject Verb Object (SVO) sentence. We compared the gender effect with that of the semantic information of the verb in order to estimate its importance.
