It is, at present, not understood why these two studies produced contradictory results. On the basis of these rather limited studies on the activation of embedded words, it appears that such words are activated in both initial and noninitial position in word and non-word carrier sequences. The TRACE model, it should be recalled, predicts effects of the lexical status of the carrier sequence upon embedded word activation. When the carrier sequence is a non-word, and when no matching lexical candidates are aligned to the left of this target, the embedded word will be activated.
