Not much is known about apprehension, the earliest stage of information processing in elicited language production studies, using pictorial stimuli. For example, (1) is the process influenced by the specific type of information that a speaker needs as a starting point for the preverbal message? (2) Is it a process that can be adapted to the specific time constraints of a task? To broaden our understanding of apprehension, we analyze landing positions and onset latencies of first fixations on visual stimuli given short stimulus presentation times, presupposing that the first fixation directly results from information processing during apprehension.
