Numerous studies have reported subliminal repetition and semantic priming in the visual modality. We transferred this paradigm to the auditory modality. Prime awareness was manipulated by a reduction of sound intensity level. Uncategorized prime words according to a post-test were followed by semantically related, unrelated, or repeated target words presented without intensity reduction and participants performed a lexical decision task LDT. Participants with slower reaction times in the LDT showed semantic priming faster reaction times for semantically related compared to unrelated targets and negative repetition priming slower reaction times for repeated compared to semantically related targets. This is the first report of semantic priming in the auditory modality without conscious categorization of the prime.
