Wiki Version:
<p>The CompLex database presents a large-scale collection of eye-movement studies on English compound word processing. A combined total of 440 participants completed eye tracking experiments in which they silently read unspaced English compound words (e.g., <em>goalpost</em>) embedded in sentence contexts (e.g., <em>Dylan hit the goalpost when he was aiming for the net</em>.). Three studies were conducted using participants representing the non-college bound population (300 participants), and four studies included participants recruited from the student population (140 participants). The database comprises trial-level eye-movement data (47,763 trials), participant data (including a measure of reading experience estimated via the Author Recognition Test), and lexical characteristics for the 931 English compound words used in the studies.</p> <p>The database consists of three linked databases, in comma-separated <code>.csv</code> format. One is a database of participant information, <code>CompLexParticipantData.csv</code>, which includes information about the study they took as well as basic demographic information and individual-differences measures. A second one is a database of compounds, <code>CompLexLexicalData.csv</code>, which provides information, including lexical statistics, about each target word and its corresponding carrier sentence frame. A third database, <code>CompLexEyeMovementData.csv</code> reports basic eye-movement measures for the target word in each sentence frame per each experiment. Finally, a master file <code>CompLexCombined.csv</code> merges together all information using two key fields: <code>SubjectID</code> and <code>SentenceFrameID</code>.</p> <p>Full descriptions of the variables are provided in the paper uploaded within this repository.</p>
