Dear Linda

You could have found answers to many of these questions (BTW: questions 1 and 4 are identical) by simply googling the key words: Googling

- "masked priming" gives you <http://www.u.arizona.edu/%7Ekforster/priming/index.htm> as first hit; - "N400" gives you the Wikipedia page at <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N400>; - "principal component analysis?" gives you the Wikipedia page at <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principal_components_analysis> as the first hit, and you can also look at <http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/stathome.html?stfacan.html&1>.

However, I fail to see why questions like these get sent to a corpus linguistics list. Many of the terms such as priming, event-related potentials, etc. are hardly corpus or computational linguistic in nature.
