From Bye-Bye to Buy-Buy: Influence of Homophone Priming on Judgment and Behavior

Can reading “bye” influence how much someone will pay to “buy” a product? Can reading “wait” influence perceptions of an object’s “weight”? We investigate conditions where one homophone – words that sounds the same as another but has different spelling and meaning –primes perceptions and behaviors related to the complementary homophone.
