Thus, large A^ words would be relatively less inhibited than small A^ words. Following this rationale, the A^ effect could be viewed (interpreted) as a diminution of an inhibitory effect rather than as a pure facilitatory one and the inhibitory neighbourhood frequency effect would be theoretically reconciled with the facilitatory N effect.
