That this effect was observed for both low and high frequency words suggests that the effect reflects processing at a late stage of word recognition; the reader’s eyes remain on the word until phonological units for lexical access have been assembled. The suggestion that stress assignment accompanies lexical access is consistent with the finding of lexical effects in Greek stress assignment, suggesting that whether or not languages mark stress overtly with a diacritic, the placement of word stress may occur in the later stages of word recognition, in both oral and silent reading.
