Additional participants who were not native English speakers, did not complete the experiment, or who were under 18 years old were excluded. Participants were given sentences like “Sally frightened Mary” and asked to rate how long the mental state was likely to have lasted: seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years. We tested 42 fear-type and 216 frighten-type verbs listed in Levin (1993). The order of verbs was randomized for each participant, as was which names went with which verbs (we used the 70 common female names used in Exp. 1).</p> <p><strong>Notes:</strong></p> <p>Note that in this and other <a href="http://gameswithwords.org" rel="nofollow">gameswithwords.org</a> experiments, subjects of age 1 or 2 can generally be assumed to be the experimenter (who usually listed himself that way during testing).</p>
