That phonologic knowledge is within the phonologic output system. Many accounts of naming and of its disorders have found this threestage model, with the middle stage being an amodal semantic stage, to be sufficient. Indeed, a great many reported studies have been concerned with establishing how their data fit various aspects of a three-stage model. For example, in different patients and patient groups, errors in visual-confrontation naming have been attributed to the visual-input stage (Kirshner, 2.

1994; Dell et al, in press). (Note that these models also explicitly assume that partial information is available from one stage to the next). Although the strictly serial model of Levelt et al. may be logically defensible, and although it clearly can fit most of the data (if not all), models with temporal overlap and partial information flow are strongly supported by a number of different lines of more direct experimental evidence. Psychophysical and evoked potential measures (Miller & Hackley, 1992; Smid, Mulder, Bocker, Van Touw, & Brunia, 1996) are highly consistent with cascade processing, at least for some cognitive functions.

Lexemes, phonemes, and any other item under consideration have always been assigned to units or nodes. This has been true regardless of the controversies over what is exactly in a level of representation; whatever type of items a naming theorist endorses, they are represented as units or nodes. Nodes are not inactive atoms or quanta; as in chemistry or physics, they 50 Barry Gordon have been postulated to have properties that give rise to the observed dynamics of naming.
