A long tradition of research on word production has described the influence of psycholinguistic variables during object naming, such as age of acquisition or frequency. Recently, several studies have started to explore the influence of variables related to the object use or function. Specifically, these studies investigated whether and to which extent motor aspects associated to an object affect lexical access, the so-called manipulability effect. In the current study, we observe that object manipulability determines naming latencies in an object naming task performed on 560 photographs provided by Guerard, Lagacè and Brodeur (Beh Res Meth, 2015).
