It is important to point out that just as RB for words could occur simply with orthographic overlap, RB for pictures could also occur based just on visual similarity. Kanwisher et al. (1999) showed that two unrelated items that looked similar (a pear and a guitar) produced RB, just as Arnell and Jolicouer’s (1997) use of novel non-object stimuli (with no established phonology or semantic meaning) successfully produced RB. In summary, visual similarity is sufficient to produce RB for both words and pictures.
