the acoustic realization of phrasal prominence, which has been proposed to potentially allow prelexical
infants bootstrap the basic word order of the target language, a major syntactic property of natural languages.
The output of this prelexical
level is passed down to various levels of the word-formation component, where semantic, morphological and phonological information is processed (Stekauer 2005: 43ff).
The GO model posits that unitization processes (which are subject to the visual characteristics of the letters in words) underlie the efficient recognition of function words that guide the computation of the structure of the sentence, thus incorporating both prelexical
and postlexical sources for the missing letter effect.

In this context, Stainthorp and colleagues (2010) analyzed the extent to which children with slow RAN performance exhibit prelexical
visual processing deficits and found that slow RAN children have difficulty in discriminating simple visual features.

In other words, we want to explore if gender is identified on the basis of surface, prelexical
information of the word, such as the presence of the suffixes -a/-o, or if, on the contrary, gender information is only retrieved at a postlexical stage when agreement between one word and the other has to be computed.

The full parsing models defend a mandatory prelexical
segmentation of the word into its stem and affixes and lexical access of morphological relatives across the same entry (Taft and Forster 1975).
