Supplementary Material

This supplementary material is a pilot test called HOLF developed by our group. The first task was a warm up task consisting of 20 antonym relation pairs, while half of them were distractors. The second task represented other, mixed high order linguistic features, including synonymy, homonymy and hyperonomy vs. hyponomy. Each item group included 20 items while 10 of them were correct and 10 of them were distractors. Individuals were instructed by the examiner: “Please mark if the first words correlate with the last word in the line”.
